The budget

An interesting final budget from Gordon Brown today, particularly with the surprise announcement of the cut in the basic rate of income tax and the cut in the main corporation tax rate.

Along with other economists and analysts, am ploughing through the detailed pages of the budget, so will post some conclusions later. On the face of it, this has been a budget about resetting the fiscal framework in places, rather than a particularly revenue raising or tax cutting statement.
