    Default Budget 2019 live

    As is by now traditional, I'm putting this thread up so that we can collectively post the main provisions of the budget live, as it happens, this afternoon. Enjoy.

    Will we have a revival of the old tradition of queues of cars at filling stations tonight as owners seek to 'beat the budget'?

    Not expecting much but sadly this stuff still excites me.

    As is also traditional, there has been a lot of pre-budget leaking this autumn. There's a reasonable summary of what we know:

    This will be, within the constraints of being seen to be prudent and reducing debt, a budget for the election that will be fought in Jan/Feb. The Social Welfare and Tax changes will be kicking in then and Brexit may be resolved one way or the other.

    Increases to alcohol and cigs.

    Plus an entertainment tax on sports tickets would be a good idea but FG won't do it.
    We appreciate the move by the Government today and remind ourselves that it is a bail-out by taxpayers for the banks. Pearse Doherty
