TEXT - S&P revises United Kingdom's outlook to negative
Thu Dec 13, 2012 12:28pm EST
-- We now expect the United Kingdom's net general government debt as a
percentage of GDP to continue to rise in 2015, before declining again.
-- Future employment or growth shocks could pressure government finances
-- We are therefore revising our outlook on the unsolicited long-term
ratings on the U.K. to negative, from stable, reflecting our view of a
one-in-three chance that we could lower the ratings if the U.K.'s economic and
fiscal performances weaken beyond our current expectations...
