NEVER MIND the B*LLOCKS Osbo peddles, deficits don't really matter

Accumulated debt

But isn't that skewed by all the 'debt' hidden in Brown's beloved PFI contracts, and hence off balance sheet? While it may not technically be debt, the country is committed to paying fixed amounts for long periods (often decades) into the future, which smells an awful lot like debt to me.

Lump all that in with the 'real' debt and we're getting perilously close to that 120%.
