Some quick reading.

I think this is simplistic, and there’s a lot more data to include (sale of BT, Royal Mail, BG, etc and so so) and also the possible use of price indexes to show a bit more flavour to what has been borrowed and returned by each government. BUT!

LOOK, according to this:
Conservative govts borrow more, pay back less.
Labour Governments pay back more of the money they borrow.
