I read this is disbelief

Public spending by sector

I am totally gobsmacked at where government money is spent....forget austerity,it seems clear to me where we are over and under spending. When you peruse the charts over 20 years its astounding.What on earth were new labor thinking of?

  • What, exactly, does “other spending” comprise? Would we be allowed simply to enter “other expenses”, without further breakdown, to determine our tax code?

  • What are you gobsmacked? Steadily increasing spending is to be expected – growth plus inflation.

  • Still don’t understand your point. I think insufficient is spent on education, but welfare includes the state pension, and health care is unavoidably expensive, especially with an ageing population. That’s why the sums are big

  • Christ! Look at health. And what has this extra spend got us? Seemingly worse care and greater infection rates.

  • I, also, cannot find anything strange with these figures.
    The NHS spend is much cheaper and better value than the European and American models.
    The main bad boy in there is interest – Brown should have totally cleared the debt 2000 – 2007.
    I would also like to have seen much more for housing and transport (infrastructure).

  • Quite so, cut pensions, put up VAT on gas & electricity, not to mention insist on infrastructure investment on green technology i.e. renewables, and Bob’s your uncle, Fanny’s your aunt, massive reduction in welfare (pensions). Throw in some food price rises as well as healthy council tax increases, and you have a lovely recipe for fiscal stability.
