My Drum piece of yesterday was on the Budget (of course).
I made a dumb error with the billion/million on the debt limit. In my original version I had it correctly at 250 billion. Someone on twitter suggested I had made a mistake re billion/million. I was actually at the pub last night having drinks when I read this and so I looked online at my piece and saw “250 billion” which I was sure was right, but I went on the AOFM site to double check and looking on my iphone saw “$228,826m” and I quickly and stupidly thought “Oh no it’s an ‘m’!!!”, and so quickly emailed the editor of the site to change it. The million/billion error was actually for another figure (which was corrected).
An inexcusable error, so idiotically stupid of me.
Please be aware I have slapped myself in the face repeatedly in despair.
Anyhoo here are the graphs.
