So- what is happening to growth? Truth is, not very much . The latest data from the UK Office for National Statistics (ONS) showed a drop in GDP in the last three months of the year. A slightly bigger fall in October than originally estimated; a weaker than thought offsetting recovery in November; a small 0.1 % drop in December- and there you have it. A 0.3 % decline in economic activity in Quarter 4 after a 0.1% fall in Quarter 3- and a technical recession is upon us!(i) As a result, growth last year as a whole clocked in at just plus 0.1%. Not much to shout home about.
