Budget2010: The LiveChat!

On Wednesday afternoon at 12:30pm here on Biased-BBC we will be live blogging the last Budget before the General Election. The Budget will be carried on all major television channels except for BBC1 which will be showing Bargain Hunt (no, really!).

Importantly for us here on Biased-BBC, we will be looking carefully at the different ways that channels report and editorialise the announcements. We’ll be able to compare, for the first time here, one event reported several ways in a live environment. Good for bias checkers as well as important for everyone who pays tax in the UK.

The Chancellor’s speech will certainly be a political affair rather than a fiscal exercise, so we can expect plenty of unaffordable goodies deferred until after the Election with a challenge issued to the Conservatives to oppose them.

This chat will be a collaboration between A Tangled Web, All Seeing Eye, Barking Spider, Biased-BBC, Corrugated Soundbite, Dick Puddlecote, Governmentitus, GrumpyOldTwat(thanks for the pic!), Man Widdecombe, and Subrosa – all excellent and highly recommended blogs. If you haven’t been to some of them before then please take this chance to try them out.

From Biased-BBC, All Seeing Eye and David Mosque will be in the moderators chair so it’ll feel just like our regular Question Time evenings. To catch the live blogging, come back here on Wednesday, March 24th just after noon.

    For some background information:

    I noticed there are no brave “predictions” from Peston or Robinson this year, as there were last year.  They got double-crossed by No. 10 last year about a VAT rise, and Nick Robinson especially was not happy.  Peston tried to pretend it didn’t happen, but Robinson sulked.

    The idiot woman on BBC1 news (Flanders) was trying to big up the Budget. The amount we owe might only be 170 billion this year and not 178 billion she states!!!! Whoopee!!!! break out the champers guys, were’ not as f**ked as we think. Er except Steph sweetie can you tell us what the total UK national debt is?

    Oh and why does Liam Fox’s name keep coming up on the BBC over the freebie trips? In fact why has the BBC used this story to hide the REAL story which is Liebour scum toughing yet again? All I heard on Pravda 5 this morning was “Liam Fox”

    Oh and guess where the BBC are sending our favourite ex coke head Richard Bacon to cover the budget? Why Tyneside of course. Why there? Could it be that it’s one of the few places left on the planet where they still love the one eyed coward?
