Budget was not fair or progressive
The Budget was neither fair nor did it promise the least prospect of success in restoring the country to economic health.
It significantly reduces the disposable income of the less well-off and this will lead to further job losses, especially in retail. The ill-judged cuts in capital expenditure will have a similar effect.
What has been dished up is more of the same, another step down the same old fatal road by the same notorious gang of clinging, parasitic incompetents.
