Government spending

Here's a neat graphic from the Tax Payers Alliance, showing what is actually happening this year.  You can see that spending is huge, so much so that the tax we all pay doesn't cover it, and that's the deficit, which will be borrowed at interest (for the banks).

As far as spending cuts go, they are minute in comparison, and are then offset by the increase in spending this year anyway.

So although all this guff from the government that they're making savings and reducing the deficit is technically correct, it's not really telling everyone the whole picture.  Are we losing public services just to make this small dent in the huge debt we all carry on behalf of the nation?  That debt stands at over £1tn, or over £16,000 for every man, woman and child in the UK, and it's growing all the time.

Real eyes realise real lies...
