Budget analysis: this was Robin Hood in reverse...

From Dave Watson's blog:

Billed as the ‘Robin Hood’ budget the Chancellor not surprisingly turned out to be more of a Sheriff of Nottingham. As always with the Budget the devil is in the detail and that takes some time to digest. Missing from the budget are: action on investment, public services, young people and unemployment. But instead this is just the sort of Tory budget you would expect. Tax cuts for the rich, £40,000 each for 14,000 millionaires, paid for by everyone else. At least we didn’t get “we are all in this together”!

See Dave's full and detailed blog post on today's Budget at
Always an excellent analysis.
