Evidence:

'Well, I think I really didn't think they were going too well really. I read the leading article in the Chronicle... they try to make things look as bright as possible, I think, but by the trend of it, I didn't think it was very bright. We don't hear a lot about it and of course it makes people sometimes wonder what is happening.'
