This can’t go on indefinately.

Public borrowing at record levels

UK public sector borrowing was the highest on record in May, the Office for National Statistics said. Public sector net borrowing was £19.9bn in May, and has already reached £30bn in the first two months of the financial year. This is double the level of one year ago, and even higher than the £19bn borrowed in March. The total outstanding government debt has risen to £774.8bn, £150bn more than one year ago, equal to 54.7% of UK GDP.

    Wonder what the stamp duty figures looked like?
