More borrowing: where does it all end?

Public borrowing higher than expected in December

"Britain's government borrowed slightly more than expected in December as the economy continued to struggle, thwarting efforts to erase a large budget deficit and adding to pressure on the UK's credit rating". "The figures are unlikely to deter speculation that Britain will lose its coveted triple-A credit rating, which is already on negative outlook with all three major ratings agencies".

  • Normally there is no plan. Just hope. Kick the can and hope:
    a) things last until you can complete you terms in office and retire with some nice advisory role from large corps you helped during you terms in office. see Tony Bliar.
    b) Something comes up. Muddle through.

    Or the few who do have a plan will normally include starting and war of some type to distract the masses.
