It has been stated that this country is now 2.3 trillion in debt and that it is more than the country is worth.

So if you have a spare couple of trillion, you could do a deal to buy the UK outright.

Ha ha and public service workers, of which I'm one, are up in arms because they might have a pay freeze.
Our precious NHS is probably exempt mind you, despite being shut to most people for the last 8 months.
A family member had cancer treatment back in early summer and the follow-up "aftercare" has been atrocious, almost to the point of being negligent.
I actually wonder if this is the moment where we start to realise we can't afford the NHS....

Anyone who is only on a pay freeze should count themselves lucky. I was speaking to my Brother the other day and they've had to have a 10% pay cut.

In the preset climate a pay freeze is a good result.

They still have a job, unlike many.
But a lot of airline pilots and other trades, out of work, but still paid 80% wages.
They must be most expensive unemployed ever?
When the shit hits the fan, everybody duck!

Govts borrow quite cheaply over many decades usually - so in interim only have to repay a small amount each year - and in part also inflation will over time reduce the real cost of future repayments.

Overall the cost of Covid will be on the shoulders of many future generations.

Well, one thing is for sure we won't have to pay the usual EU subscription fees anymore so that’ll save a few quid ;-) lol
