The knives are out for George Osborne!

In what many believe has been something of an extended honeymoon period for David Cameron and George Osborne it seems that this week will see business leaders, children's charities and unions unleash their venom against the UK government. This comes just hours before the announcement of an emergency £85 billion budget which will see cuts in the UK public sector the likes of which have never been seen before.

George Osborne and David Cameron have been softening up the UK public and the UK business arena for some time now with a suggestion that the UK economic situation is worse than many thought. However, despite a number of complementary comments from some areas of the business arena it seems that the knives are out for George Osborne no matter what he does on Tuesday.

The next week will be vital for the UK coalition government but inevitably David Cameron and his government are in a no-win situation. Whether they rob Peter to pay Paul or look to spread the pain as widely as possible there will be a significant backlash on Wednesday morning. How David Cameron and George Osborne react to the growing criticism could serve as a pointer for the future.
