News comments:
The ONS is now on YouTube. Why didn't you tell me?

The UK produces lots of meaningless statistics. But no more. The ONS (Office for National Statistics) is now explaining the statistics on YouTube. The narrator is a pseudo Welsh Rob Peston and its very illuminating. Ideally I would like Mervyn King or Nick Clegg to provide a narrative and maybe they will in the future.
