Abstract

Together with setting out fiscal policy, Budget speeches provide an opportunity for the government to sell their broader political philosophy, writes Noel Thompson. He examines the language used in such speeches throughout the previous century and explains how the collective concepts of ‘country’, ‘nation’ and ‘people’ have been employed by chancellors to engage with the emotions of their audiences.
