Ed Miliband has dubbed it “a millionaire’s budget that squeezes the middle”, “unfair” and “out of touch”, “for the few, not the many”, an unfair budget from the “same old Tories”.

George-Osborne-Budget-2012George Osborne, meanwhile, has said it’s a budget that “supports working families and helps those looking for work”, “unashamedly backs business” and “is on the side of aspiration – those who want to do better for themselves and for their families”.

But what do you think? Vote in our Budget 2012 survey and have your say.

    Good idea. If Norway, which is self sufficient in hydrocarbons, can have a super high tax, so can we. The global tragedy is that the pump price in the USA is way less than half of ours and no politician dare mention it. No wonder they have import problems.

    With 10 pounds per gallon petrol rail fares could be 10 pence per mile and there need be no spending cuts at all. AND we would no longer need to import Oil and Trouble from Saudi Arabia.
