The Budget

The government is elected to run the country every four years. The leader of the government is the prime minister David Cameron. The second most important person in the government is the chancellor of the exchequer George Osborn.

Every year the chancellor reveals how the government will raise and spend the countries taxes. Taxes pay for everything in the country: from schools to roads and from hospitals to street lights. The budget has been released and shows that Mr Osborne is planning on speeding up network and broadband connections.

There hasn’t been any mention of young people in any of the newspaper reports or on the Internet. This is clearly not a budget for young people. There is, however, a lot about pensions – so we think they’re trying to appeal to the older vote. After speaking to the general public one thing that we have found is that a lot of young people don’t know anything about the budget.
