Rob discusses the concerning increase in government debt in the UK, which is the largest peacetime increase in over 300 years. Rob highlights the potential consequences of high levels of national debt, such as difficulty in funding public services and responding to economic crises, and touches on the trebling of the debt ratio in the last 15 years alone, with the ratio of debt to GDP reaching over 100%.
"We've seen the largest peacetime increase in government debt for more than 300 years."
"High levels of national debt will hurt the UK's ability to fund public services and respond to an economic crisis."
"The knock-on effect is difficulty in funding services and increasing spending in the event of potential future economic crises."
"The forecast is that the ratio will be about 140% of GDP over the next 50 years if current market expectations are correct."
