Restore sanity to the public finances of the United Kingdom

This petition had 1,820 supporters

UK government debt now stands above £1,700,000,000,000, excluding the future liabilities of unfunded public pensions and nuclear decommissioning. This madness has to stop - we must protect our children from the price of this addiction to debt and overspending.

We the undersigned, as concerned citizens of the United Kingdom, believing in sound money and responsible public finances, do call on parliament and the Office for Budget Responsibility to:

  1. Produce a clear plan to reduce the government debt and live within our means with a properly balanced budget. 
  2. Legislate to introduce a debt ceiling to prevent our public debt increasing beyond £2 trillion.
