The Billion Pound-o-Gram

UK government spending represented by a billion-pound-o-gram, which gives a broad idea of where the  money comes from and where it goes.

This visualisation created by David McCandless called The Billion Pound-O-Gram mixes up 2008/9 figures from the Treasury and the Guardian. He was especially concerned with the size of the UK budget deficit – the country’s overdraft as he puts it. It’s more than an entire years worth of income tax!
