Another opinion given as fact. Wtf has that to do with the price of milk?

It was relevant in the reply to Alan B from which you've ripped it. He suggested the UK would just ignore EU rules. In fact the UK has a reputation for following the rules.

Given I wasn't replying to you, and you post opinions as fact about thirty five times before breakfast each day, I don't think I'll be indulging you further in this instance.

In the EU, by the member states and its bodies. You won't find complaints about the ONS fabricating data.

For some reason you think you can claim otherwise without source, despite this being a strong claim, based on your own opinions. I know you won't carry the burden of proof that you've generated (after all, you've expended thousands of words in this thread without producing the merest sniff of evidence that ONS data collection differs from the rest of the EU or is suspect in any way), so there's probably little point discussing it further. I spent around two hours providing you with a fully sourced and quoted reply already this afternoon and you didn't even give it a cursory reading, so let's not pollute the economics section of the board with a string of back and forth.
