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.
Indeed, today it is much higher than it was in 2008. A flat lining economy with any growth sucked out of it really hasn't helped things one bit.
