This report from the CBI tells us all what ordinary people already know. The economy is up shit creek, and the only paddle in in Gordon Brown's hands and he is currently using it for firewood.

Oh, and would anyone like to tell me where I got the headline for this story from ?

No prizes, just the glory of being correct.

I don't know where you got it from but it's a line from "Star Trekking" by some awful novelty band (maybe the first of Tony Hawks No 1s?)

Presumably therefore also originally from Star Trek
