I do wish people would report the public spending discussion accurately. In the last Red Book the government planned current spending of £694.2 bn in 2015-16 compared to £672.9 bn this year. Now they plan to make the 2015-16 figure £682.7bn. This is still an increase of £9.8bn over this year, though a smaller increase than the previous plan.
Capital spending was already planned to increase from £47.2bn to £50.4bn, and is apparently to increase by more under the revised plans. Endless media discussion of cuts of 10% are very misleading in the overall context of these figures and the large borrowings needed to sustain them.
