Cheers Chancellor! Winners & losers from Budget 2013
The chancellor delivered a better speech than expected. But who benefited from his Budget? We round up the winners and losers.

Beer, beer, we want more beer!
Modern day chancellors may no longer have a tipple at the dispatch box but keeping drinkers happy is an age-old populist device.
Osborne made his bid for good bloke status by scrapping the beer duty escalator that would have seen the price of a pint go up 3p and continue to rise in future years. In an extra flourish he cut duty on a pint of beer by an average of 1p.
Other booze duties will rise 2% above inflation though: that adds 2p to a litre of cider, 10p to a bottle of wine and 38p to a bottle of spirits.
