Public Spending Growth

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.

I bet people don't vote them in again!

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