Is This The End Of The Recession in the UK?

Most businesses have had a torrid time recently, with some switching to 4 day weeks to keep production profitable. As a result, companies have lost money, people have lost jobs & families have been struggling. Pretty grim, isn't it?

Well, there are areas of good news for April, with The Guardian reporting that industrial output has risen for the first time since February.

From the article:-

Manufacturing output rose 0.2 percent on the month in April, again an unexpected rise and following revised figures showing a similar rise in March which was the first increase since March 2008.

What does this mean? Are we out of recession yet. Maybe not, it's not a huge rise, but it's a positive when everything around here is so negative.

What do you think?
