Consumer confidence stays low

UK consumers remained down in the dumps about the economy last month, according to the latest GfK confidence figures. The survey showed an index score of -29 for the economy, in line with May’s reading and slightly down on the -25 figure seen this time last year. Brits are even gloomier about the country’s finances than their own purses, giving the general economic outlook a score of -31 compared to
-23 for their own financial situation in the coming year.
