FIFA World Cup and UK Budget

It could not be helped with the 50 day post election rule however the new UK coalition government has cleverly decided that the Budget will be on 22nd June. No doubt hoping the country will all be immersed in the FIFA World Cup tournament, they can implement as many swingeing expenditure cuts and tax rises as possible. They may go almost unnoticed as, given our penchant for scraping through the group phases in major competition’s, we sweat about England’s final group game on 23rd June. What happens if England do not get through to the next stage and we all wake up to the reality of the serious austerity measures that have been mooted…………..”come on England”
