Budget 06: 'Mortgaging our future' says opposition

Opposition leader David Cameron slams Brown's Budget as 'tax and spend'

Conservative leader David Cameron slams the Budget as ‘mortgaging our
future’, citing £175bn of borrowing by the government planned for the next six
years.

‘He is an old-fashioned tax and spend chancellor,’ said Cameron. ‘They’re up
to their necks in debt.’

Cameron says Brown is a chancellor who has taxed too much, borrowed too much
and is stuck in the past

He said, however, that he welcomes the independent compilation of statistics
and youth volunteering as these were his ideas.

‘I come up with the ideas and he puts them into the budget,’ he says.

He also argued that Brown had not yet made a speech on environmental issues,
despite announcing envrionmentally incentives during the Budget.
