'Britain deserves better' says Opposition leader
LABOUR leader Ed Miliband attacked a "more of the same" Budget from "downgraded Chancellor" George Osborne.
"Compared to last year's Budget: growth last year down, growth this year down, growth next year down, growth in 2015 down," said Mr Miliband.
"All he offers is more of the same: higher borrowing, lower growth... a more of the same Budget from a downgraded Chancellor. Britain deserves better than this."
But George Osborne told MPs there were "no easy answers" to the country's economic problems.

He said: "This is a Budget for people who aspire to work hard and get on. It's a Budget for people who realise there are no easy answers to problems built up over many years, just the painstaking work of putting right what went so badly wrong.
"Together with the British people we are slowly but surely fixing our country's economic problems."
