The Guardian has put together a comprehensive list of reactions from different key economic figures and analysts after the United Kingdom’s GDP fell by 0.8% in the second quarter.
George Osborne, chancellor
We all know the country has deep-rooted economic problems and these disappointing figures confirm that.
We’re dealing with our debts at home and the debt crisis abroad. We’ve made progress over the last two years in cutting the deficit by 25% and businesses have created over 800,000 new jobs.
But given what’s happening in the world we need a relentless focus on the economy and recent announcements on infrastructure and lending show that’s exactly what we’re doing.
