Student Blog – 4 April 2017

News Story of the Week: The Chancellor of the Exchequer, Phillip Hammond, has finally released the Spring Budget.

To those who were eagerly waiting to hear what the Chancellor had to say on the matter of economy, he didn’t disappoint.

To the rest of the populous, the Chancellor’s sudden happiness about the economy was as confusing as wrapping an enigma in a riddle and asking a 5 year old to solve it only using their left hand and right foot.

And having a blindfold draped over its eyes.

Hammond’s announcement of the Spring Budget has come of the back of the success of a new Prime Minister in the House of Lords because of a bill to cause Brexit.

And so to our new feature: The 2017 Hall of Fame. This week, the candidate for the second place in the Hall Of Fame is a person who has stood up against his government in time of need but has been rewarded with a big fat nothing.

So, as compensation for his firing from his position and while it may seem unbelievable, Michael Heseltine, a person who stood up to the Tory government and failed in quite dramatic style, is the second person to be inducted into the Hall of Fame.

This has the possibility of being the last blog for a long time as I have to revise for upcoming mock exams and so we will return to the cesspool of news approximately in the first 2 weeks of May.

So long, avid readers. Until we meet again.
