Who's the Chancellor?

Here are 2 headlines from articles;

Headline one;

Alistair Darling 'to announce date of the budget'

Alistair Darling is to announce the date of the budget this morning, the Treasury has disclosed.

Headline two;

Gordon Brown warns of 'choppy waters' ahead as he sets stage for May election

Gordon Brown has warned that "choppy waters" lie ahead on the path to economic recovery but insisted he has the "courage" to get the job done.

The Prime Minister used a speech to a City audience to announce that the Budget would be held in ''two weeks' time'' - March 24 - setting the stage for a May 6 general election.

Now I thought the person who announced the date of the budget would be the chancellor, but Gordon Brown announced it instead. It makes you wonder did Gordon Brown steal Alistair Darling's thunder.

Another thing to ponder, who will be writing the budget, Alistair Darling or Gordon Brown?

My prediction for the budget will be, more tax on the rich, more tax on the taxpaying workers, more tax on cars, more tax on home owners, but more benefits for the scroungers who refuse to work.
