    I think you'll find no one gives a **** about your opinion.

    WHEYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY .
    Brilliant rucklo

    I've seen them do that in the house of commons before
    When vince cable complains about a bank's attitude towards being bailed out
    George osbourne just stands up and says "I think you'll find no one gives a **** about your opinion."

    You should definitely think about being a politician, I heard dyslexic politicians are in really high demand.

    But seriously, what are you still doing here, you said you were going to leave after being utterly sat down.

    However italy is over 100%

    Maybe you should stick to your GCSE economics if you think Italy is in a better state than the UK in terms of its economy.

    G7 Countries - external gross debt/GDP ratios, 2003Q2 - 2008 Q2


    I love how you equate our economical issues as a 'bit of dirt'. Have you considered a career in politics?
    The above doesn't even consider the past year, to which we may assume has made it even worse considering browns Keynesian-happy-go-lucky policies.
    Don't patronise me. I'm not stupid. I'm aware of our huge national debt, and our country has always had a sizeable national debt. However, the solution to that is clearly not to completely cut off our aid to other countries. That's a ridiculous idea. Do you have any idea what ZERO aid from the UK is gonna do to our image? The US is already frowned upon for only giving national aid equivalent to 0.14% of GDP.

    And moreover, why should we punish individuals suffering from abject poverty in other countries just because our own country is having some fiscal issues? Foreign aid is TINY. Our benefit system alone is hundreds of times more expensive than the aid we give to EVERY other country annually. Let's sort out the inefficiencies in the benefit system- that will save us BILLIONS, not a few million that other countries depend on and that WE also depend on to keep our international image up.

    But on the other; This is a horrible humanitarian crisis and we should help.

    Yeah, but debt can't really cause hyperinflation like it happened in germany...
    Japan has always been a nation of creditors.

    Why is it that Britain only gives a damn about other countires after an earthquake? There are plenty of countries with huge death tolls through disease or improper facilities but as soon as one country gets and earthquake Britain suddenly takes notice? So this country needs to either: 1) Pay all countries that are suffering (which is pretty difficult) or 2) Take care of Britain and Britain only which is what I think should be done rather than throwing money at countries that are not just going to improve with a little bit of cash.

    How about the government do both help the poor and needy and occasionally help out in a humanitarian crisis. There are loads of other things the government wastes money on and that should be used to help the poor and homeless.

    Yes but its debt is still getting quite high

    anyway's my point was their debt is higher yet they are still giving aid

    same with US

    and it did cause hyperinflation in 5 countries

    also quote from article

    Japan’s deficits are already within the hyperinflation “red flag” zone identified by historian Peter Bernholz
