That our level of debt in 2008 was pretty much lower than all our economic contemporaries, in fact quite considerably lower than most.
Wiki paints a gloomier picture of UK government debt. Of the 27 member states, only Greece, Ireland, Italy, Belgium and Portugal having higher debt to GDP ratios.

Indeed, of the EU countries outside the eurozone, the UK has the highest government debt and highest annual deficit.
