Every single sector of the British economy is now doing better than expected and has defied the forecasts of economists in December.

Every single sector of the British economy is now doing better than expected and has defied the forecasts of economists in December, according to the latest services PMI data from IHS Markit on Thursday.
It completes a trilogy of much better than expected post-Brexit economic figures released this week, following strong growth in the manufacturing and construction sectors.
The services sector — which includes everything from banking to waitressing — drew a reading of 56.2 in the month, that’s compared with a 55.1 reading in December, and ahead of the flash estimate of 54.7.
That follows on from a big manufacturing beat on Tuesday, when the PMI rose to 56.1 in December from 53.6 in November. That was well above the 50-mark separating growth from contraction and beat forecasts for 53.1 by economists in a Reuters poll.
