Budget summary

If people look like their pets, this man must be the world's biggest badger breeder.

Your humble Devil has been watching the Budget and much of his reaction can be found on Twitter. However, for those of you who cannot be arsed to work their way through my expletive-ridden explosions, here is a brief summary.
Blah... stability... blah blah... lie... another lie... none of this is our fault, it's the Tories wot done it... blah... introduce EU target and pretend that it was my idea... blah... lie... more lies... more stability... miss out some crucial lists about the shitness of our economy... blah... still the Tories' fault.

Further, another lie... waffle about trade but no mention that it is an EU competence... blah... lie... more tax on booze and cigarettes... blah... wank, toss... badger-baiting banned... waffle... lie... blah... I'm a fucking tossrag... since we've screwed over pensioners, we'll lob some more fuel money at them... blah... lie... utterly unrealistic projection... waffle... stumble... wank.

Lie, wank, environmental tosss... yet more crap about the lastest "science" though no mention of the Manhattan Declaration... blah... lie... justification for mor tax... wank... lie... yet another EU target masquerading as my idea... lie... another lie... crap... fucking over drivers... balls... careful avoidance of embarrassing figures... an egregious and outright lie... lie... wank... waffle... shit...

Safe to say, you didn't miss much. Basically, Darling has been screwed over by Melchitt Brown and there's very little that he can do. The poor little Greek boy also has a succinct appraisal...

Cameron's reply was pretty good though, I thought.

UPDATE:
something useful from Conservative Home.


UPDATE 2: The Dude does the Budget in his own way...

Once again, I find myself in pretty close agreement. However, I had a couple of beers prior to the speech which helped to temper the most violent outbursts, and also made Cameron seem funnier than he probably was.

I fell asleep when Clegg started talking, but that was nothing to do with the beer.

Fuck off, DK. Badgers are fucking awesome. They look nothing like that fucktard Darling. Darling looks like a skunk, not a badger, and he's made of AIDS, cancer, lies and fail.

I have to agree: that was a cruel thing to say about badgers. Nice bit I just heard on TV: Columbian drug barons will be rubbing their hands in glee now a line of coke costs less than a pint of bitter. I don't know the figures myself. Perhaps you can run us through that DK?

Noone's mentioned the BBC.

Any mention of the (entirely shite) budget?

Nope, not here either. the BRITISH BROADCASTING ASSOCIATION choose t lead with a story about an american politician. In fact, as far as I can see, the budget isn't even covered on the front page.

For fucks sake.

Watch out cabinet ministers. If I have the chance, I am going to kill you. Just to mkae the british population wake and realise what shite they are taking.

I think I could make Darling's life a lot easier by just submitting a list of things I do and enjoy as a middle class, full time employed female who has to drive to work. Then the hatchet faced fucktard can just work his way through my list slapping a tax on each item. Oh, hold on...what's that?....he already has. Twat. And one more thing, when are this bunch of horse-faced arse-heads going to realise that NOT EVERYONE LIVES IN FUCKING LONDON??? We don't all have the tube and 48 buses per hour to get us from place to place. Some of us can't get from home to work on public transport coz there isn't a link so we don't have a choice but to use the car. Wankers, the bloody lot of them. I'd like to lock the whole cabinet in a small garage then burn it down.

Was this badgered budget presented by darling or John Major? I couldn't tell it was so grey, dull as dishwater!

Seriously guys, what do you expect? It's a socialist-type ferret (sorry, no badger here, move along) giving a typical labour budget.

To summarise; we tax you some more and then again because we haven't really got a clue.

Next year's budget is widely expected to be much the same...
