    This paper investigates the effects of changing UK government policies from 2010 to 2015. It considers government spending, and the effects this had on UK government debt. Evidence in this paper suggests there was a critical period around 2012, which may have taken UK from sustainable growth to the edge of financial crisis. Future governments can learn from what happened in UK between 2010 and 2015: this paper is intended to shed light on the effects of choices made by the coalition government. A particular sequence of events may have shaped the UK economy‟s future: staff shortages, overwork, and illness, leading to poor judgement. Keynes [1] suggested we should learn from history: “I do not know which makes a man more conservative – to know nothing but the present, or nothing but the past”.
