here's a video from our friends at Full Fact giving an overview of how public money is currently spent.

If you've got any thoughts about what's rumoured to be coming up in the Budget or what you would like to see, we'd love to hear 'em.

Thanks

Digital tax reforms postponed by one year for those below the VAT threshold. No use to me.

Ughhh... much higher tax rate for the self employed even though we do not get all kinds of employed things like sick pay and holiday pay.

Really disappointed they are going ahead with 30 funded hours even though it will create chaos among providers and will increase costs to under 3s. Its going to force lots of parents (mostly women) out of work because providers will have to put up fees of all other hours to cover the massive short fall on these funded hours.

the 2008 banking crisis resulting in a large increase in debt. This has got worse under this government. www.ons.gov.uk/economy/governmentpublicsectorandtaxes/publicsectorfinance/timeseries/hf6x/pusf
