Budget 2015: Osborne teases Labour and SNP on Agincourt

The chancellor used the Budget speech to tease his Labour and SNP opponents, with an announcement to celebrate the 600th anniversary of the Battle of Agincourt.

George Osborne told MPs that the battle showed a strong leader defeating "an ill-judged alliance between the champion of a united Europe and a renegade force of Scottish nationalists".

And he joked it would be "well worth" the £1m to celebrate the moment in history.
