  8. 8. The story so far On the issues Party leaders The economy The road to 2015 Framing the debate over the deficit Plan A Plan B 54% 55% 55% 54% 51% 51% 49% 49% 46% 45% 45% 46% March 2011 May 2011 Sep 2011 May 2012 Sep 2012 Mar 2013 Plan A: Britain has a severe debt crisis that threatens international confidence in our economy. Every year that the country borrows money it costs taxpayers millions in interest payments. The longer we go on borrowing, the more tax we pay to fund it and the less public services we can afford. So, even though this means bigger spending cuts that will carry on long after the next election in 2015 we need to get the country’s finances back to balance as soon as we can. Plan B: Britain’s debt problem is serious and must be dealt with, but it would damage the economy and public services if cuts were made too quickly. So, even it means borrowing more for longer, we should slow the pace of cuts, rather than trying to deal with the problem as soon as we can.
