The Liberal Democrat influence on the budget

It is an incredibly busy day today and i may not get back to the computer for some time so while you are waiting pop over to Liberal Democrat Voice and have a look at Mark Pack's article on how the Liberal Democrats influenced yesterday's budget.

Here is a flavour:

one decision that had been up in the air was over the Green Investment Bank and how much power it really would have. George Osborne’s previous strange absence from the debate was put to rest when he announced a series of pieces of good news on the Green Investment Bank: starting a year earlier, £2 billion more in funds and, crucially, it can borrow. As Paul Waugh put it “Big victory for Cable”, not to mention Chris Huhne and Nick Clegg, who had taken the lead in settling the internal debate over how much powers to give.
