i think it will hit 240 billion around the 2nd June.

Its around 1 billion to go which at about 300 a second translates to 3 1/3 million seconds which is about 38.5 days

I roughly calculated it coming in just after May 5th but they have Emergencies to cater for so let's just see how close it can come.

It will, no problem to it. They borrowed 26 billion in 2019 so more than 12 billion since January 1st already.

The dirty secret coming down the line is that there will have to be spending cuts but no one dare speak its name at the moment.
I could easily cut 5 billion a year, and the working class wouldn't even notice.
