Nick Clegg's letter

"When the history books are written, I want them to say that this government paid down the budget deficit..." [my emphasis].

Is that American history books? I hope British history books don't adopt that Americanism, which Nick Clegg seems to have picked up from David Cameron who used it in one of the TV debates. "Paid off", or "reduced" please, not paid down.
