Economic fact and Snelgrove fantasy

Annie’s spin reportToday I received Ms Snelgrove’s latest spin Parliamentary Report. This appears to be an annual event. She seems to think that, in the circumstances, Swindon’s economy isn’t doing too badly.

These are challenging times but I am confident Swindon can hold up better than most during the down turn in the global economy. Government schemes in Swindon… have meant that we are still seeing high levels of investment coming into the town. I am confident Swindon will continue to prosper and there will be new jobs in the future through this investment.

Today there was news of over 1,200 job losses in Swindon, at Honda and one of its suppliers.

Anne Snelgrove, keeping out-of-touch with Swindon.
