Shadow chancellor Ed Balls has told Good Morning Britain that cuts in public services are "quite a chilling prospect" following George Osborne's final pre-election Budget.
Describing the Chancellor's Budget as "out of touch", Balls said, "This idea that it is going well for people I just don't think fits with our lives."
"Don't forget, a few years ago George Osborne said he was going to balance the books ... and he's failed," Balls said.
"it doesn't have to be this way. We could have had a better Budget for working people that boosted wages and got the economy growing in a more sustainable way - he didn't do any of those things".
Here is what the papers have to day the morning after Chancellor George's Osborne's pre-election Budget announcement.
In video blogs for ITV News, young businessmen said they think the budget is helpful for them, and other young people.
Charities have been lining up to criticise the Budget, whilst the government continue with their rhetoric on 'takers' and 'givers'.
