Latest figures for borrowing shows a big increase. Benefit payments up 12%. Tax receipts down 7%. The feckless cannot account for the rise in benefit payments, these are people thrown on the dole and needing the safety net of our welfare state. Where or where are the policies for growth. Until we get one tax receipts will continue to fall both from income tax and indirect taxation. I suspect the government will try and redress some of the inbalance by a hike in fuel duty, which in itself could be self defeating. Plan B, before we go the way of Greece.
