The Debt Clock Tour

The TPA Debt Clock hits the road tomorrow:
"To highlight the crushing size of the national debt, the TaxPayers’ Alliance (TPA) is launching a 1,300 mile tour of Britain – featuring a 7 metre long, lorry-mounted digital Debt Clock, ticking up as the Government borrows more and more money. The campaign has a simple but direct message for the nation’s politicians: “Wake up to the National Debt!”
Crucially, the Debt Clock will tour around the whole country, stopping off at national landmarks and key cities to raise awareness of the national debt amongst the taxpayers who will one day have to pick up the bill for politicians’ reckless borrowing."
The tour kicks off in London, and full details are set out on the Debt Clock website.

And remember, the government is currently borrowing nearly £0.5bn per day.

Look out for the clock in front of an expensive government building near you.
