Ed Miliband called 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”.
While George Osborne said it was 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”.
And Nick Clegg said it was “a budget for the millions, not millionaires”, claiming “a basic rate taxpayer will be paying £45 a month less in tax than they were when the Coalition took office”, while “those with annual incomes of more than £150,000 a year will be paying on average an additional £1,300 a year in tax, as a result of this Budget”.
But what did the readers of Left Foot Forward think? Sign up to our email service to find out.
