See this excellent rundown on the costs to the UK. Crippling. Astounding. And all run up virtually ‘in secret’, with the public knowing nothing about it.
Note this paragraph from it:
“To defeat inflation, in other words, interest rates would have to be raised to over 7 percent. The debt repayment would then be close to £150 billion ($201 billion) per year at least. The equivalent, it turns out, to the government’s current spending on education, defense, policing, and transportation. In short, it will not happen.”
This is the kind of hole the world wide coprocephalic epidemic has dug for the British. A similar hole has been dug and is being dug for Aussies.
