Even so the oncoming economic downturn is another reason to do it now

Easter was in March last year, this year in April.

Probably accounts for some of it.

Wait and see how the April figures compare

They were blaming the poor results in March because of Easter Big Grin
I do agree though a better picture will be gained overtime but not looking good.

It'll be ironic if UK leaves the EU market when it's struggling and the EU is seeing the strongest growth in years.

In part, it shoves a pipe up Sturgeon.

May will win easily.

I also hope it gives her the mandate she is accused of lacking to carry out:

Hard Brexit
Extreme Brexit
Destructive Brexit
'People didn't vote to be worse-off' Brexit
Hard Tory Brexit

And all the other bullshit Tim Farron, Chuka Umunna, Clegg, etc, call it.

Inflation figure will be interesting. If, as expected, this rises, the BoE will be under pressure to raise interest rates, which would put the squeeze on households even more. I doubt May would want them to do that before June 8th.

They can hardly stay at 0.001% for ever, mind.

May has cut off the potential effect of any increases in the shorter term by the timing of the election,
plus you can bet pressure to hold the rates will have been applied already.
