Anyway, I am biding my time . . . in the waiting room . . . waiting for a revised response from “you know who.” I am formulating a database structure, while I seek out new data, boldly googling where nobody has googled before. We are getting set for any contingency.
But I cannot stop looking at the budget. Page 6 caught my eye. It’s getting better though. The expenses are shown above the revenue, and the deficit is not even mentioned, as well as the debt . . . it’s like they doesn’t exist! Plus, it is a pie chart, rather than a list, so it looks pretty, wholesome . . . and pointless . . . the miscellaneous or “other” £74 billion of expenses are 10% of the total expenses! I could never get away with that on an income statement. Seems like . . . well, un tas de merde . . . excusez mon Francais.
