The upcoming budget by Chancellor Jeremy Hunt has attracted attention from multiple newspapers.
Whilst The Guardian suggests the focus should be on ending the crisis with public services funding, by borrowing and increasing taxes on the wealthy, it argues that it will probably consist only of "token gestures typical of these self-proclaimed One Nation Tories".
Meanwhile, The Mirror suggests that Hunt will need to communicate good news to attract voters, amidst rumours that his support for Boris Johnson's ousting has made him unpopular among some Conservative circles.
The Guardian editorial notes that it's unlikely the government will enact fundamental changes to the funding crisis, and predicts that green policies will likely feature heavily in Hunt's speech.
Whilst The Mirror suggests that Hunt needs a strong showing to secure his position as Chancellor amidst mounting disapproval.
The content of the articles is substantively similar, in that they address the upcoming budget by Chancellor Jeremy Hunt, but have very different characterisations of him and the likelihood that the budget will accomplish anything significant.
The Guardian is critical of the government's likely approach, while The Mirror is sympathetic but wary of the Chancellor's political future.
