  • This was neither a Budget nor a leadership pitch…
  • No mention of the NHS…
  • Brown is the roadblock to reform…
  • Glad to see Tory ideas on things like volunteering being pinched by the Chancellor…
  • This was not a green budget…
  • The Chancellor hasn’t made a serious speech on the environment in 11 years…
  • In a carbon-conscious world we have a fossil fuel Chancellor – taxing energy, not carbon…
  • Britain is growing slower than all of the English-speaking world…
  • We’ll examine the detail of this speech because the Budget speech is always different from the small print…
  • Savings ratio has halved since 1997…
  • Tax burden is higher than at any time in Britain’s history… higher than when Dennis Healey made the pips squeak…
  • £6,000 of debt for every household in Britain means that this old-fashioned tax-and-spend Chancellor is mortgaging the future…
  • He’s done nothing about transport… some of our motorways look like car parks…
  • He’s doubled spending on NHS but debt in the hospitals is £1bn…
  • He’s doubled education spending but half of all children leave school without having achieved proper standards…
  • Billions spent, billions wasted, no return… with a record like that he should be Treasurer of the Labour Party…
  • His means-testing has destroyed pensions provision…
  • Gordon Brown is the roadblock stopping Britain from meeting the challenges of the future…
  • Brown is the analogue Chancellor in the digital age…
  • "He is the past."
