    It looks like just a few companies has bolstered the index, but, take out those few and overall it isn't doing that well. That will give Corbyn and his lot more ammunition i think.

    Which illustrates the problem of assessing the impact of Bexit - it is not possible to run the two situations in parallel.

    "The economy is doing quite well."

    Thanks to Brexit is what Brexiteers will tell you.

    It would have been doing better if we stayed in is what Remainers will tell you.

    The truth of either point of view is impossible to verify.

    Which of these things is not down to the fall in the value of the pound and some creative massaging of the figures?
