Conservative leader David Cameron went on a rampage today, declaring the budget announced by Chancellor of the Exchequer Alistair "Hold me" Darling as "Madness".
The budget itself certainly had some surprises, with the UK borrowing levels reaching the point that by the end of 2010, there will be no country on Earth that the UK does not owe "significant levels" of money to.
The Chancellor did introduce new taxation policies to drive increased revenue, including a new tax, targeting iPod users with the new "iTax" and announcing that every fifth person to make any complaints about Jonathon Ross would now be subject to a "Complaint Tax". Andrew Sachs responded furiously.
Furthermore, the Chancellor's promise of "Magic Beans for everyone" has also been questioned by the Tories, claiming that "such beans offer nothing other than fake promises". The Chancellor refused to acknowledge such suggestions.
