The chancellor was quick to defend his Spring budget today saying it had something for absolutely everyone.
'As always, most of the measures in my budget will benefit the richest most. But I haven't forgotten everyone else. The squeezed middle will be squeezed again, and the most needy in society - well they'll get something too - increased debt, minimal increases in benefits, and the biggest fall in living standards for a couple of generations'.
'And don't forget the annual conundrum I've gifted to the most vulnerable in society once again - how are they going to make ends meet?'.
