George Osborne has an elephant problem

Poor George Osborne has to find £4.4 billion today to make up for the 30 quid that he was going to rip off from the disabled.
Let us remind him that £4.4billion is in fact a trivial number great scheme of things. 
Here is George's White Elephant Budget (WEB)
Item                                          Cost, £billion
Universal Credit                                  13
HS2                                                     50
Hinkley C                                            24
Trident                                               100
European Fighter Aircraft                   17.6
One aircraft carrier
(sans aircraft)         6 
Grand White Elephant total:              £2,100,000,000 

There you go, George. You can cut some of that expenditure.
