The UK National Debt is a topic that is not widely reported. However the UK as a whole is a highly indebted nation.
The figures here are worrying.
So the UK spends more than it earns (revenues from taxation and duties)
Currently the UK is carrying £1,604 Billion of debt, and by March 31st 2017, the UK is forecast to spend another £34 Billion to take the current debt from £1,604 Billion to £1,638 Billion.
This debt is constantly accruing interest that is paid to the UK creditors. Remember, we are in it together.
