I found out last night that the national deficit is not as bad as first thought. Apparently, the treasury use the American billion (000,000 000) rather than the British billion (000 000, 000 000). Phew, that's a weight of my mind. I'll be able to sleep more soundly now.
So, the deficit currently stands at a mere £804, 000, 000 000 rather the £804, 000 000, 000 000.
Every person's share of the debt is now over £13,000.
Thank goodness for that. There was me thinking that we were totally screwed!
