UK's Prime Minister denies good-news, that austerity-easing budget signals an early Election
British Prime Minister, Theresa May affirmed on Tuesday, that the austerity-easing budget does not signal an impending election. Speaking in Oslo, May said, "we are not preparing for another general election. That would not be in the national interest." The Prime Minister said; the budget only shows that "austerity is coming to an end," and not meant to evoke snap election in the coming months. According to May, the austerity-easing budget doesn't just mean more money in the public services but more money in people's pockets as well. She reiterated that her administration plans to give the biggest single injection of extra money into UK's national health service in its history. Finance Minister, Philip Hammond announced boosts to public spending and an income tax cut for millions of British workers on Monday, in the first significant loosening of purse strings in eight years. May was attending the Northern Future Forum in the Norwegian capital with counterparts from the five Nordic and three Baltic countries.
