Labour frontbenchers are no strangers to getting their numbers in a muddle, but Mr S. would still expect better from the shadow treasury minister. Anneliese Dodds has just popped up on Politics Live to talk about today’s GDP figures. But when she was asked how much Britain’s economy grew by in the last three months, she didn’t know:

Andrew Neil: How much did GDP grow in the 3 months to the end of September?

Anneliese Dodds: Erm, I don’t know that off the top of my head

AN: Well you were just talking about it, you should know that. Well I’ll tell you what it grew by 0.7 per cent.
