Public Spending Fact Checking tools: Come to your own conclusions.

Equip yourself to combat the deluge of “alternative facts” and “half-truths” which are flooding the media with these independent tools that track public spending here.

It’s quite a bare bones, no nonsense, set of tools which let’s you browse UK government income/spending data all the way back to the 1940s and explore the trends of reported figures including:

  • National Spending + Breakdown
  • National Debt
  • “The Deficit”
  • Tax and other Revenue

Did you know that income tax from U.K. Citizens accounted for 25% government income in 2016 vs. only 6% from corporation tax?
