Infographic of the day: Budget 2012

The VAT increase, the Household Charge, cigarettes and alcohol – get all of the main points of Budget 2012 in two rather nifty infographics.

IT TOOK TWO days, two Ministers, and an adjustment of over €3 billion, but we know now the full details of Budget 2012.

Few of the pre-Budget leaks actually materialised on the day – there were no drastic cuts to Child Benefit or charges for medical cards. Instead, there were many smaller, less dramatic cuts across a far wider range of areas than had been predicted.

You can see all the winners and losers of the Budget here.

And if you’ve read too much over the past two days and just want all the news summed up in two shiny infographics, well, we have just the thing for you:
