Embedded text or transcriptRoyal wedding blamed for weak economy
"Rupe took me up the aisle!"
Person DepictedMurdoch; Rupert (Keith Rupert) (1931-)
Osborne; George (1971-)
NotesNews: "Yesterday's economic growth figures were in line with expectations, with a rise of 0.2 per cent in the second quarter of 2011. But that is only because our expectations have been so depressed. Even if we factor in the various "special factors" - the royal wedding and so on - the growth rate for the quarter would still be only 0.7 per cent. That is way behind where it should be after a steep, deep recession. It leaves the UK at the bottom of the global growth league - not counting Japan, which has difficulties not of its own making.".... The Independant
News: "The Chancellor, George Osborne, has had 16 separate meetings since May 2010 with News International editors and executives, including two with the Murdochs within just a month of taking office. He also invited Elisabeth Murdoch as a guest to his 40th birthday party last month. ..." The Independant
