That means there are 32.1 million currently in work and unemployment sits at just 4.3%.

According to the Office of National Statistics: “The number of people in work in the UK increased by 181,000 in the 3 months to July 2017 to a new record high of 32.1 million, following 3 consecutive quarters (including the current quarter) of growth.

“The number of employees and self-employed both increased in the 3 months to July 2017 and are also at record levels (27.1 million and 4.8 million respectively).

“The share of unemployed people who were unemployed for over 12 months decreased by 3.7 percentage points to 26.3% in the 3 months to July 2017 compared with the same period in 2015.”

This is all “despite Brexit”, of course. Project Fear myths spread by the establishment look more and more deranged by the week.
