European government debt increased across the board during the pandemic, but as Statista’s Martin Armstrong shows in the chart below, the effects were felt a lot harder in some countries than they were in others.

The figures, compiled by the UK’s Office for National Statistics, reveal a 12.9 point increase across all EU countries.

Ireland, in terms of general government gross debt, saw a percentage point increase of just 0.4 from the end of Q4 2019 to the end of Q3 2021. Spain, on the other hand, now finds itself with 26.3 p.p. more.

The UK, in comparison, recorded a change of 18.8 points. UK government debt now exceeds its GDP – 103.7 percent – and is the highest rate of the post-war era, far exceeding even the levels seen as a result of the 2008 financial crisis which peaked in 2014/15 at 84.9 percent of GDP.




The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
