Oh goody. That’s just what we need. I was dreading the prospect of an emergency Budget which has become a habit following the last few general elections. No sooner have we digested one Budget and got used to the new rules, we’re faced with another, just because a new government wants to put its stamp on the economy as soon as they’ve got into power.
But, the BBC has reported that George Osborne wants another piece of prime time TV, so that’s the way it must be. (This is the official confirmation from the awful GOV.UK site, my thanks to Rebecca Cave for pointing it out to me on twitter).
