This data all adds weight to the argument the current level of debt is unsustainable in the face of rises in interest rates. I can not see how all the VI's are so bullish on house prices. When this debt mountain collapses the economic cosequences will be severe. Crash Gordans legacy!!

Is it me or does the personal debt graph look like it's following an exponential trend. Why are the banks, treasury and Bank of England not concerned about this. Also, can anyone tell me where this money comes from. Do the banks really have 1.25 trillion deposited in their accounts by the more sensible customers?
