Chancellor George Osborne has delivered his Budget for 2015.
In his speech, the Chancellor claimed that Yorkshire had created more jobs in the last year than the whole of France.
He also announced pressure from Keighley and Ilkley MP, Kris Hopkins, swayed him to cutting 1p duty per pint of beer, along with the agreement of new city deal for West Yorkshire Combined Authority.
However, Labour Leader, Ed Miliband, quoted Leeds City Council in saying that the Government is "no friend of the north".
The Opposition Leader then argued, "Let's really test him out on whether he is a friend of the North - 75% bigger cuts to local government budgets in the North than the rest of the country."
Rarely will we see a Chancellor so clearly enjoying a Budget. George Osborne seemed to take pleasure in knocking down his opponents' claims.

Having set expectations so high (or low, depending on your political views) George Osborne has the opportunity to ease back on austerity.
