Budget 2016 is just around the corner and speculation is rife with regards to what the chancellor George Osborne might have in store for us. From how much extra a pint of beer may cost through to concerns about extra stamp duty, the effects of the Budget will be far-reaching. We wanted to take a different look at the Budget predictions and pair up some of the more likely events with some lighthearted suggestions of what might happen – in bingo form. If you’re planning to follow the Budget on Wednesday afternoon, why not print off the card above and cross off the predictions as you hear them? Alternatively, you can tweet the statements that you think are most likely to happen. Eyes down for a full house!
