So #Budget15 has been announced, and it left me pretty cold, in every sense. There was much talk about recovery, and the end of austerity, and the sacrifices that were imposed on us. I knew how it would go and the radio was switched off as soon as the Budget speech began.
The end of austerity?
Or just fallen leaves?
Do you see the recovery? I see it in the city centre shops, in busy restaurants, in the shiny new cars on the road, and the white vans parked up as yet another trophy home gets a revamp.
Yes there is a recovery, but not a real one. This is a recovery for the lucky few.
I won't believe in it until everything changes.
