Double dipstick; VOICE OF THE voice@mirror.co.uk.



TORY grandee Lord Young of Graffham lives in an ivory tower if he genuinely believes Britain isn't in recession.

It's not just official statistics which show we are in the dreaded double-dip. The austerity policies of the Tory-Lib Dem Coalition are sucking the lifeblood out of the economy.

The falling living standards of millions of families are proof that we're in recession.

The collapse of the construction industry, with Britain no longer building for the future, is proof that we're in recession.

The pay freezes for nurses and teachers, plus measly wage increases in the private sector, are proof that we're in recession.

And unemployment at its worst since the last time we had a Tory Government, with huge numbers of people forced to go part-time when they need full-time jobs, is proof that we're in recession.

Lord Young's airy declaration that we should avoid talking the country down will be heard with disbelief by all those employees, tradesmen, businessmen and families who know all too well that we're in recession.

The wealthy peer with a desk in Downing Street is so out of touch he must be from another planet - Planet Tory, a world alien and hostile to ordinary people.
