Alistair Darling and his disreputable henchmen have the duty of presenting a budget for UK the next fiscal year this week.
If you were in his shoes what would you do? (token points only for those that say Suicide or Resign)
There are 3 main options:
Fiscally Conservative - Cutting services and reducing debt
Fiscally Neutral - Holding spending down to a level consistent with this year (in the current case, this is actually quite expansionary)
Fiscally Expansionary - Blow a huge debt bubble and hope it drags the economy out of recession enough to enable repayment of the massive debt
What would you do, answers in the comments? Best answers will get hat-tipped an incorporated in the CU budget plan which will be out soon.
