Budget day

At 12:30 today the Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, will set out the Government’s 2011 budget.  Here’s hoping it’s fair to women.

Update 3pm: Not a bad budget at all.  I’m glad that the issues around maternity pay didn’t appear in it, although a little frustrated at the implication that flexible working is bad for businesses.  Yet to see what the Fawcett Society has to say through.
