It's all worth reading. But perhaps the most striking passage comes in Nicholas Watt's interview with Lord Lawson:
To my mind, an emergency budget is both an economically and politically wise move. Given the scale of the fiscal crisis, the markets will need reassuring asap that the Tories have solutions to offer. And the Tories themselves will want to set out just how catastrophic their inheritance is, to get the public on side for the tough measures they'll have to introduce over the following years. So pencil in George Osborne's first Budget for August 2010.“
"Lawson expects David Cameron to follow the example of Howe, Margaret Thatcher's first chancellor, who held an emergency budget within 40 days of the Tories' 1979 election victory. 'To wait until the following March or April would be disastrous,' he said. 'They have probably got to do what we did when we came in in 1979. We came in, in May, and had a budget 40 days later.'"
*Although this is only day one of a two-day special report, so there's the chance that they'll present a diferent take tomorrow.
