The headlines are a bit mono just now, here are a few other things to look at:
RPI fell in March and in April - the economy is still getting worse.
Engineering Turnover and Orders have fallen both quarter by quarter and year by year.
Fuel price at the pump has been rising since January.
Average weekly earnings have shrunk.
The Credit Conditions Survey from the Bank of England looks pretty bleak.
You'll have an attack of the vapours if you look at the BoE's Statistical Interactive Database.
The employment rate is slightly better in Scotland than in our nearest neighbours but not good enough.
At least we've got Gordon Brown to save the world though.
