    UK spends less and borrows less. Sounds like a good result.

    Next watch house prices fall - even better.

    So what'll drive inflation when spending holds? Oh I know, interest rate rises. That'll teach them.

    #taking back control.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”
