They owe it to people who buy government stock.....investment firms, private individuals... https://www.economicshelp.org/blog/334/uk-economy/uk-national-debt/
Its national savings for example so thats us. And pension schemes with guilts and bonds etc.
Seems to be pleny of money available https://www.ukpublicrevenue.co.uk/total
With this negative interest, is that a government income now ?

mostly we owe it to private citizens.
Unfortunately OG we have to pay back all the excessive spending, plus now Boris has trashed a load of jobs you will have to pay more tax to fund the benefits of the unemployed and of course make up for their shortfall.

Basically we are stuffed negative interest rate or not.
