Unemployment Is Actually At 1.16 Million

This claimant count figure is still at least 2m below what it was under the Tories - the Tories only ever used the claimant count figure.

Now the media can also use the higher Labour Force Survey figures which Labour highlighted as their preferred figures when they came to power in 1997, which were never quoted during the Tory era, which is very convenient for our sensationalist Tory press.

Unemployment reached as high as 15% of the working population under the Tories - today it stands at 6% - which should give us some perspective on these figures - if only people would ever get to read this in their daily propaganda sheets, some hope of that!
