UK deficit spending

On 26th of November 2020, in the middle of COVID-19 health care desaster the UK is announcing a horrific budget deficit for 2020. Apparently, this is the largest for more than 100 years. The costs of bad choices in several votes (BREXIT, Parliament, Prime Minister) can be calculated in billions of pounds now. The younger generations pay a particularly high price. Cut of from Europe, job losses due to covid-19 and then the huge debt burden … and this despite the fact that they voted in a majority to stay in the EU. Very unlucky!  As Germany was the sick man of Europe with high deficit and high unemployment I continued my studies in the UK, maybe youth in the UK could take advantage of migrating in numbers to Europe. Sometimes this is the only fact stubborn governments will listen to. So,”get on your bike” across the channel this time. A famous quote from Michael Heseltine to solve the unemployment of youth in the early 1990.
