Our country is now mortgaged to the tune of many billions or maybe one and a half trillion sterling depending on what one is reading. Help please: 1. What is the total national debt? 2. What is the annual interest bill on that (includes what interest rates does the Govt have to pay on its internal and international borrowings?) 3. What are the repayment terms? 4. Adding up from the above, what is the national bill to the taxpayer for interest and capital repayment, and dividing this by ? the number of adults what is each adult going to have to stump up each year, on average across the UK, to fund this borrowing binge? 5. How on earth do we get back on track as a solvent economy? No point asking a politician as I would never believe the answer.
