Snapshot

Statistics are a great tool, however, if the statistics aren’t pleasant, perhaps they could be manipulated to suit? Also will IOMG follow up areas of concern, for example, in February 2023 Budget? After all as many contributors on here have said, IOMG aren’t exactly ‘nimble’.

I think this is very good, and well worth a browse.  Expected, but interesting to see how air travel is still well below 2019 levels.

To be honest that’s the most ridiculously cobbled together load of meaningless poorly presented data I’ve seen in a long time.

It’s fairly obvious whats wrong if you look at it it looks like they were done by about 10 different people in various different styles. A lot of the data is fairly meaningless too. 

That's not very specific, is it? Don't different sets of data require different styles of presentation? Would this not naturally occur if different departments contributed? What data are meaningless - the ones you don't like, or the ones you don't understand? I am not a government shill, but generalised slagging off of everything because it's come from the government is lazy and boring.

What would you like to see and how would you want it to be presented?

I know Microsoft Power BI (produced their graphics) as a system, and you can pick various presentational approaches.  Bear in mind that it can only work with the databases that you actually have.

700 grand is 'nearly down to'?

Is it all relative? When we have an annual PS wage bill of £500M a year, £40M being drawn from revenue for pensions (not forgetting the pensions liability black hole itself) and the other various commitments that Govt has entered into - £700M doesn't look such a generous margin?

I take it you too see the borrowed £400M coming in during the end of 2021. If we hadn’t raised that we’d be very close to the wire.

OK - fair challenge - and that money was borrowed for spending (or there would have been no point issuing the bond).

Interesting too that although it was down to peanuts, the pension reserve has finally gone to meet its maker.  The current account is now exposed to every penny of public sector pension expenditure.

PS - I said it was well worth a browse...
