Chancellor Alistair Darling was lent 13bn last month -- the highest ever for a June -- bringing his total borrowing for the financial year so far to 41.2bn, more than the entire defence budget. Remarkably, that makes 2009/2010 already the fourth-worst year in history for government borrowing, despite it being only three months in. The growing black hole, which Mr Darling has forecast will hit 175bn this year, is being widened by falling tax revenues and public spending swelled by the need to pay the growing ranks of unemployed. The June figures came the day after public auditors identified the worst slump in the government tax take since the Twenties. Todays public finances figures show that company tax receipts are down 14 per cent on last year, while VAT revenues are 16 per cent lower. Public spending in June rose by 1.2bn to 44.9bn, with the cost of social security up almost 10 per cent at 13.3bn. Total outstanding government debt now stands at just under 800bn or 56.6 per cent of GDP. The only glimmer of hope was that the figures were better than most City forecasts, but many still believe that borrowing will breach 200bn this year.

Hector Sants, the chief executive of the Financial Services Authority, has told bank chiefs they risk heavy penalties by offering pay packages including guaranteed bonuses of more than a years salary. Chancellor Alistair Darling is urging the FSA to step in after City institutions signalled that big bonuses were making a comeback despite bank bail-outs. PCHILDREN from middle-income and working-class families miss out on career opportunities because of the lack of social mobility in Britain, a report warned today. The study, by a cross-party panel chaired by ex- Cabinet minister Alan Milburn, calls for sweeping changes to tackle a closed shop mentality embedded in UK professions which it claims is damaging the economy. It found over half of the top jobs, such as doctors, lawyers, accountants and senior civil servants, were taken by those who went to independent schools, though they account for just seven per cent of all pupils. Mr Milburn said: It is not just the most disadvantaged caught in the gap between the demand for good schools and their supply. It is also many middle-income families. He claimed professions have become more and not less exclusive, adding: Britain has lots of talent. What we have to do is open up these opportunities so they are available for everybody.Warning: Milburn Im working too hard to be of the rebellious nature -- HARRY POTTER STAR EMMA WATSON, 19, lEfT,SAYSSHESTOObuSYTOATTRAcTScAndAl, Adding:wHEniHiTmYTHiRTiESillgOcRAzY I think I flew to the wrong place...
