    Relative percentages can be tricky. I gather the Business Secretary, Vince Cable, thinks it would be a ‘success’ if manufacturing as a proportion of UK output could be increased from today’s 12% to 15%. But this ‘success’ could be achieved by destroying a sufficient amount of UK service industries, which hardly seems very sensible. Moral: Be careful what you wish for.
