The Guardian columnist Simon Rogers has produced a useful graphic, illustrating how the changes to growth forecasts announced by Osborne in the autumn statement affect our national borrowings.

This is truly scarey, especially if you notice how the GDP predictions in the later years have clearly been fixed to keep the borrowing possible in the next couple of years. As the predictions move through time it is clear that they lose contact with reality and are created post facto to make the numbers work inside the Treasury. What we will really be facing in 2014 or 2015 if we carry along the path that Osborne has set does not bear thinking about.
