However you analyse it, the economy is beginning to turn around. I see everything from bank lending to house prices, from job figures to apprentice numbers showing an improvement.
There is even a significant improvement on youth unemployment figures.
The final verdict on the economy is announced on Thursday when at 9.30am, the number-crunchers at the Office of National Statistics will announce whether Britain is emerging from the recession.
Regardless of your politics all will cheer if it is good news on Thursday.
