Since Labour came to power in 1997, public spending as a percentage of GDP has increased by 2.4%. This is the highest of any G7 country, which on average achieved a reduction of 1% over the same period.

Public spending has increased because people voted for Labour to spend more on public services, that after 18 Tory years of cuts, were falling apart.

In addition I bet that a lot of that money was spent on quangos and the like.
