This and much other shit is the fault of Thatcher, who decimated the Brit stats community as part of an attempt to reduce the burden of red tape. Coincidentally making it vastly more difficult to carry out Keynesian demand management in the UK ... the net effect, however, may be positive, as it means that the Bank Of England has to rely on its regional agents a lot more, and on whizzy econometric models a lot less.
