I believe it is the 7th of December.

P.S. Incidentally, this is the anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. :eek:
To paraphrase Frankie Boyle, and to think of the later days of that war, for a FF TD to vote for this Budget is like being handed a pair of flying goggles by Emperor Hirohito.

Here are some other parallels...

1941 - Pearl Harbour (Tora! Tora! Tora! Aren't we great!)
1942 - Midway (Uh oh; things have turned; this next gamble had better work)
1945 - Hiroshima, Nagasaki (abject surrender)

2007 - FF election victory
2008 - Bank guarantee
2011 - Budget impact, return to the bond markets
