"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Emergency Budget: Live Blogs/Online Streaming

Unusually, it seems that no-one is running a live blog for Osborne's budget but both the Guardian and the Daily Telegraph have a very good running commentary throughout the morning.

If you want to catch it online there will be live streaming at
Live Parliament and Democracy Live.

Iain Dale will also be giving an analysis on the radio between 12.30 and 4pm: LBC
