My predictions for Alistair Darling's Budget (2009).

My predictions are not going to be specific, they are just going to be outline of the budget as a whole:

1. Tax reductions, increases in tax credits, giveaways to the shiftless and further borrowing/spending in general will all happen now.

2. All tax increases (apart from the stealth ones) and spending cuts (sorry - efficiency savings) will take place from 2010 onwards i.e. after the General election, making them Cameron's problem.

3. You will hear the world "Global" many, many times.

4. That's it.

This budget is going to be a farce. We won't see a real budget until after the general election.

Precisely - we'll hear the word 'global' many times.
