As the Chancellor what economic decisions would you make? What would your Budget for the country be? Which taxes will you levy on society? Where would you choose to spend the money you’ve raised? Here is your chance to have your say.

Chance to be Chancellor is open to all 14-18 year olds across the UK.

The treasury have obviously realised that the average 14 year old has a better grip of economics than Boy George.

Repeal employment laws, create "no tax" enterprise zones in areas where no tax is being raised anyway. Work for welfare, and give "pimping" a royal charter.

In return for chief and senior executives paying less tax make them work 3 years in the public sector to sort this bull**it out:
