How interesting that George Osborne is pretending budget cuts are necessary when we already know he is planning to rob the disabled of benefit money in order to give a big tax cut to the rich.
Labour’s John McDonnell is running rings around him right now.
Chancellor George Osborne has warned the country has to “act now rather than pay later” ahead of this week’s Budget.
Writing in the Sun on Sunday, Mr Osborne says he will have to make new cuts to public spending “so the country lives within its means”.
The world was “facing its most uncertain period since the Great Recession”, he wrote.
He said his 16 March Budget “will set out the clear direction we must hold to through the current uncertainty”.
