Ben Chu: A word please, Prime Minister

"How about that apology?"

The UK is now growing faster than France and Germany. The latest Office for National Statistics report suggests that UK GDP expanded by 0.3 per cent in the first quarter of 2010. Meanwhile, new Eurostat figures suggest that Germany expanded by 0.2 per cent and France by 0.1 per cent over the same period.

So can we expect a comment from David Cameron on this disparity? If the Prime Minister is consistent, we will get one.

Remember when economic figures last August showed France and Germany had exited recession with growth in the second quarter of 2009 of 0.3 per cent while the British economy contracted by 0.8 per cent? The Tory leader leapt on this as a significant moment and one full of political meaning.

He argued that:
"In contrast to France and Germany, Britain is still shrinking and this shows how Gordon Brown has been getting it wrong on the economy."

So should we expect a comment from the new Prime Minister graciously admitting that Gordon Brown didn't do such a terrible job on managing the economy after all? Don’t hold your breath.
