UK voters' panel: Budget 2005
In the run up to the general election we will be asking a panel of UK voters to share their views in text and in video, using 3G mobile phones, ahead of the expected poll in May.

Here, in the first instalment, three of the panel give their reaction to Chancellor Gordon Brown's last Budget speech before the general election.

Chris Li:
Bournemouth

Gary Watson:
Peterborough

Philippa Bartlett:
Rothwell, Northants

We asked our panellists: What did you think of the Chancellor's Budget? Was it a Budget with an election in mind? Were there any surprises in the speech?

What impact will it have on how you vote in this year's general election?

We also want to hear what you think, so send us your comments using the form after each person's views.

The readers' panel has been selected from as wide a cross-section of people as possible and may not be representative of wider public opinion.
