Budget plans on FT.com

The Budget is one of the key events of the year in the UK, and one that has many people turning to the FT for news and analysis. So we are always on the lookout to do something new.

Last year it was the Budget podcast, which was a mixture of news and analysis, ready to be listened to on the afternoon of the Budget – ideal for that tube journey home. It will run again this year, available from 4pm on the day.

This year we are going to run a live blog in the style of Alphaville’s Markets Live during Alistair Darling’s speech. Three of our most lively writers, Robert Shrimsley, Jamie Chisholm and Matthew Vincent will be providing the commentary, available on our Budget blog.

We will also be providing video analysis, the latest news from our industry specialists, and later in the day a Budget calculator.

Everything you’ll need will be at www.ft.com/budget
