Wait a few days before making a judgement
The one thing we’ve learned from previous budgets, both LAB & CON, is that early judgements are not usually the right ones. Remember the initial polling on the March 2012 omni-shambles was fairly positive.
What the budget does for all parties is to shape the way the economic debate will progress in this final period.
Whatever I guess that this was Geroge’s last budget. If the Tories are in government after May 7th he’ll have a different role.
