    I would like to thank the government for almost making me apparently bankrupt.

    BBC News - Eurozone debt web: Who owes what to whom?

    €117,580 Foreign debt per person
    436% Foreign debt to GDP
    81% Govt debt to GDP
    Risk Status: LOW
    The UK has very large amounts of overseas debt, of which the biggest component is the banking industry. The high debt to GDP ratio is explained by the UK's active financial sector, where there is a great deal of capital movement. This level of overall external debt is generally not seen as a problem because the UK also holds high-value assets. Having said this, the UK economy remains in the doldrums and the country is highly exposed to Irish as well as Italian and Portuguese debt. The UK in turn owes hundreds of billions to Germany and Spain.

    even the Greeks seem in less debt.

    GDP: €0.2 tn Foreign debt: €0.4 tn
    €38,073 Foreign debt per person
    252% Foreign debt to GDP
    166% Govt debt to GDP
    Risk Status: HIGH
    Greece is heavily indebted to eurozone countries and is one of three eurozone countries to have received a bail-out. Although the Greek economy is small and direct damage of it defaulting on its debts might be absorbed by the eurozone, the big fear is "contagion" - or that a Greek default could trigger a financial catastrophe for other, much bigger economies, such as Italy.
  2. Just want to point out that it was the Labour government that put you in so much debt, so you can thank Blair and Brown.
  3. Stop whinging , behave like an MP and borrow 200k off wonga.com or the likes , clear your debt and squander the rest on the high life .........
  4. A quick add up shows that if all the other countries paid their debt to us* and we repaid what we owed, we'd be, very slightly, in the black. Too logical/simple an idea? Also interesting to see that the yanks who think they can tell us to get our house in order, owe us approx Euro250 bn more than we owe them. They also seem to owe more than they are owed to most of the others too.

    * For us read our banks

    But, sadly you aren't, hence your sweary, shouty, angryness can only be vented by this medium.

    I noticed you found a shaved chap with an erect member to place my avatar on, I'm alarmed as I thought you didn't find such stuff amusing. Still back peddling shouldn't surprise me.

    Is the picture from your collection? Was it a fellow user hard on cash who'd let you snap him for a wrap?
