The Budget

Nice steady performance from Alistair Darling. I thought he explained things very well - the point that we had the best growth last year in the G7 is one that's not heard much.

Most people will find themselves unaffected by this budget. No one will mind - given world turmoil, people simply want steadiness from government till we know more about how things will pan out. Binge drinkers will hate the budget - but they can always save themselves some money by cutting down, people in city centres will be grateful for it.
