Time for Plan B in Britain, IMF chief economist Oliver Blanchard tells George Osborne – Telegraph

Mr Blanchard told Radio 4’s Today programme on Thursday that conditions in the country had worsened – yesterday the fund cut its forecasts for UK growth to 1pc this year – and he thought the March Budget would be a “good time to take stock”.

“We said that if things look bad at the beginning of 2013 – which they do – then there should be a reassessment of fiscal policy,” he said, adding that the fund’s advice to Britain has not fundamentally changed.
