UK £10 Billion Black Hole of Debt is False

Share Article

The true debt burden in the UK is over £1000 Billion and not the £10 Billion recently quoted.

Chancellor of the Exchequer Gordon Brown gave his pre-budget report this week and according to the Institute for Fiscal Studies, Britain has a £10 billion black hole between spending and tax collection. Those figures pale into insignificance when compared against the average debt of £16,591.81 for every consumer in Britain, equating to over £1 trillion.

The Paris-based Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has warned that interest rates may have to rise three times - inflicting serious pain on homeowners, who are seeing the value of their property slipping in several parts of the country. This will only increase the personal debt problem leaving many in a financial quandary.

"Consumer debt is increasing, house prices are falling and interest rates starting to rise again placing Britons in the vicious cycle of further borrowing trying to rid themselves of a debt hell," says Rachel O'Rourke, marketing manager for
