Oh dear. Just two weeks after Ed Miliband was caught using the wrong statistics, Labour have done it again.

The UK Statistics Authority, the official statistics watchdog, says Labour have been using ‘factually incorrect’ figures.

Chuka Umunna, Labour’s Shadow Business Secretary, had claimed that the number of young people on unemployment benefit had gone up by 60% since May 2010, with the number of claimants in the North East rising by 263%.

Wrong.

The official figures show that the actual number of young people claiming JSA fell by 38% nationwide and by 27% in the North East.

While Labour said one thing, the facts said the complete opposite.

It isn’t the first time that the Statistics Authority has rebuked Labour over their numbers.

Ed Miliband recently tried to claim that four in five private sector jobs since 2010 were created in London. But the official figures showed that only 21.7% of new private sector jobs were created in London – just over one in five.

While the Labour leader said one thing, the facts said something completely different.

If Labour keep making basic mistakes with their numbers, how can anyone trust them with the economy?
