There’s some confusion over at Bob’s place about how we measure unemployment nowadays, and a further erroneous suggestion that it’s all as bad as 1985 all of a sudden.  

 IT ISN’T!  THE WAY UNEMPLOYMENT IS MEASURED HAS CHANGED, roughly by the same proportions that we changed from inches to centimetres, but which didn’t mean we suddenly got people who were 20 feet tall.

If only people would read this blog a bit more the world would be a more factually detailed place. 

Though possibly a lot duller, and with less very, very tall people.
