UKIP economic spokesman Patrick O'Flynn has accused the Government of losing control of the public finances after new official figures showed that the UK deficit went up again during 2014, topping £100bn and that the Government's debt now tops £1,600bn.
The figures from the ONS, revealed that the deficit for the calendar year 2014 came in at £101.8bn, some £3.5bn higher than in 2013.

Tim Aker said: “We’ve seen foreign aid and mass immigration both increase under this Tory government, so this incoherent argument from Thurrock’s Tory MP once again demonstrates how badly out of touch she is.
“Residents in Thurrock want a local champion who will argue that we should stop giving billions away abroad and spend it here instead.
“They also want an MP with a plan to bring immigration down. UKIP want to leave the EU and have an Australian-style points system. The Tories have no answer – foreign aid and immigration have soared on their watch. It is complete fantasy land.Continue reading...
