The obvious question

London, GB
Post #: 155
Since nobody else asked, I will...

What did you guys think of yesterday's Budget?

Has Chancellor George Osborne done enough to tackle the bulk of the structural deficit? or has he gone too far?

If you are to consider the total debt of £900bn plus another £1500bn 'hidden' debt in terms of pension funds , PFI etc. his cuts yesterday are a drop in the ocean. But then again I think it was a good budget under current circumstances, there a limit to how much one can borrow to repay other debts. But I don't see it as a growth or recovery budget, it's was more like a SOS exercise. What do you think?
