The Budget's press coverage, which was already pretty negative, just keeps getting worse. Today's Evening Standard headline is:
The headline refers to the Office for National Statistics saying that the economy shrunk by 1.9 percent in the first quarter not the 1.6 percent that Darling predicted it would in the Budget on Wednesday.“
"Darling's fantasy Budget exploded"
It'll be fascinating to see where the polls go in the next few weeks. Given how badly the Budget has been received, we could begin to see Labour slip further and further into the twenties.
