From Autonomous Mind with the hat-tip to Terry Smith re World Economic Forum (WEF) Global Competitiveness Report. After 13 years of Gordon's and New Labour's general and legislative shite-fest the WEF ranks [PDF 6MB] the UK 72nd out of 139 ("worse than Ethiopia and Tajikistan") on 'Wastefulness of government spending', 89th ("behind those paragons of good governance, Nigeria and Zimbabwe!") on the 'Burden of government regulation', 'National savings rate' the UK is 107th, 108th for 'Government debt', 117th for 'Government budget balance' and finally - out of 139 remember - 133rd in Soundness of banks! FFS! Heads on spikes please.
