In the Last Word, Meridian's Political Correspondent Phil Hornby is joined by South Thanet's Conservative MP, Laura Sandys; the Liberal Democrats' Matthew Oakeshott - Lord Oakeshott of Seagrove Bay on the Isle of Wight; and Caroline Flint MP, Labour's Regional Champion for South East England.

They debate the budget: how will it affect working families in the south? And, after Eastleigh, do the three main parties need to take the UKIP movement more seriously than ever before?
