Just to put the deficit into perspective for you lefties out there, who seem to think that overspending by £168bn a year is a-ok, perfectly sustainable and dare I say it, even welcome.
That amount of money is more than all income tax revenues. It is not far away from all public sector pay and pensions, or the welfare bill.
So choose - double all taxes, cut 90% of the public sector, or 85% of all welfare payments.
*That* is Gordon Brown's real legacy.
