Film maker Martin Durkin explains the full extent of the financial mess they're in over the water: an estimated £4.8 trillion of national debt and counting. It's so big that even if every home in the UK was sold it wouldn't raise enough cash to pay it off. Durkin argues that to put Britain back on track they need to radically rethink the role of the state, stop politicians spending money in their name (sounds familiar) and introduce, among other measures, flat taxes to make Britain's economy boom again. This is a polemical film presented by Martin Durkin. The film brings economic theory to life and makes it hit home. It includes interviews with academics, economic experts, entrepreneurs and four ex-Chancellors of the Exchequer.
