Northern Ireland Budget Day Live Blog

Okay, I’m starting this early so people can get into some of the reporting on the UK budget early. I’m in and out of Slugger Central all day, but the focus will unapologetically on how it affects Northern Ireland. That’s a job not just for reporting the bullet points of a speech but the unravelling of detail… So I hope to keep this one open for the next 24 hours…
