well in, Camo!
Presuming there is one.
but it's clear she's not actually been into any community that has been hit by the cuts to see what the practical fall out of that austerity has been. and to be fair, I guess that's not what the meeting was about, which is part of the problem.
given that it doesn't really seem to have worked or delivered what they expected
and at a time of general financial hell, so I guess it is. I think the issues in terms of not delivering what was expected is mostly the timescales involved?
it's the comparative growth rate that is being lauded here.
This isn't a Daily Mash article.
about the UK being asked to make a larger financial contribution to the EU last year?
This piece of accounting was one of the main reasons why.
I'd hope the reason that exists is to try to force the Government's hand in legalising more things that make up the shadow economy.
Think it was just about standardising the different approaches.

It surely could not be an attempt to influence a nations domestic election result could it?
If it were an attempt to do that, then is that actually allowed? (I genuinely do not know) If it were not allowed (by the IMF rules I mean) the it would indicate a mistake of judgement by Christine, unlss it was no mistake.
Normally IMF heads show such good judgement and common sense, just look at her predecessor.
Problem is, for me, that the IMF does not have a long term or broad enough scope in that which they consider, it is able to deduce this from their approach and stated conclusions about their understanding of the global financial unravelling slow burn disaster
