Shouldn’t it be illegal to make such statements when they are unsupported by evidence?

“The pound slid to a 2½-month low against the euro and a six-week low against the dollar yesterday as dire business investment statistics raised fears that today’s gross domestic product figure would be worse than expected”  Quote from The Times today.

In fact if you look at the chart, you will see that the pound had been ‘sliding’ for some days before this data was announced. The story is dated 28th August but the pound began its decline against the euro on the 5th of August, when it was 85c.  It reached 86c on the 17th and continued  this  trend  to reach 88c on the 28th.
