The Debt Clock starts ticking

NB I am not the Devil

The vast figure above, ticking ever upwards, is the national debt - right now, at this very minute. It's been borrowed by politicians to fund their blunders and foolishness, but it is you and I as taxpayers who will have to pay it off. If, like me, you're furious that we are being saddled with the vast burden, you're going to enjoy the TPA's latest campaign - the UK Debt Clock Tour.

We've built a gigantic digital clock mounted on a lorry that counts up the national debt in real time at a breakneck pace - over £5,000 a second.

Over the next two weeks it's going to be touring the country, travelling over 1,300 miles to take the message about the vast scale of the national debt, and exactly why it is such a problem, to the people.
