On the eve of "axe wednesday"

The waiting is over, the day of reckoning is upon us, a landmark day in British political and economic history has begun, "Axe Wednesday" is here!

At 12:30pm, the Chancellor, George Osborne will stand up in the House Of Commons, and announce a package of draconian cuts, never seen in the history of Britain.

Just under half a million public sector jobs will be axed!

50% of the council housing budget to be axed!

Prisons across England to be axed!

Housing Benefit, Child Benefit and Incapacity Benefit to be partially axed!

Oh there will be more, and probably a couple of surprises..
