Change the Isle O unemployment numbers again. The bank venting in England expecting so 7/2 percent unemployment that is eye waters, like three million people out of Work. But is that also a quite optimistic? I've seen estimates for hire for the end of this year? Yeah, absolutely. For the data will get or next week will be four second quarter and again GDP data.
