Having just had a quick look at the treasuries summary leaflet it makes me realise how stupid or complacent the average british citizen is. There are several things in there I did not realise, such as are glorious leaders are now spending Â£30B on interest payments compared to Â£32B on defence. I was under the impression that when gordon took over the govt was receiving a surplus and therefore paying off this debt. The other thing in the leaflet that grips my shit is that for a chancellor that is supposed to be so prudent they govt is predicted to spend Â£34B more than it will get in revenue and this figure is set to riseeven further over the next 3 years. If i set up a buisness or ran an existing company and said to the bank manager or share holders that I would increase company debt by 5% year on year so i need more money to keep my mates happy, I think the only thing i would walk away with is a large fcuk off pill. Yet we the voters think this is ok . I am not saying I have the answers to this but then I'm on the average male wage for the Uk according to treasury figures not a hyper salary for a consulant or a ministers package that is probably worth 10 times the average income or maybe 20 times the real average income. Someone somewhere knows the answers I just they would come forward and publicly announce them in plain english.
