It's always dangerous for an opposition party to mix its metaphors when it criticises the Budget.
So is George Osborne the 3Rs man - rescue, reform, and recovery - as he claims, or iPod George or Del Boy as Ed Miliband retorted?
It depends on your politics of course, but what was clear was Osborne is keen to get over the message that ‘Britain is Open to Business'.
He did his best to make the tax regime sound a little less complex and dangle a bit to everyone no matter whether they pay no tax or lots of tax.
The non-doms get whacked with a £50,000 fee for living here 12 years, and he has not worked out whether he can tax their private jets yet.
That one plays to the ‘bash the bankers' mentality as did the increase in the bank tax levy, but then again they can leave a few old paintings to the country in their will and that should mitigate a bit of IHT.
Tax allowances at the lower end will go up, and the fuel duty escalator will be scrapped, but roll-your-own fags get a bit of a clobbering - so what he gives with one hand Mr Osborne takes away with another.
The creating of 21 enterprise zones and the huge uplift to Enterprise Investment Schemes could create big opportunities for investors and accountants - but it could also create another set of huge loopholes that the truly wealthy will be able to exploit.
He has done his bit for entrepreneurs by raising their relief to £10m and doing away with a lot of regulation, which combined with EIS changes could go some way to create the new growth he is so keen to encourage.
Equally, he gave a fig leaf to the public sector by giving an uplift to certain occupations earning under £21,000. But to a soldier in Afghanistan is it going to make him feel better off?
And on the other hand he started tackling the pension issue by putting in place increased contributions of 3% on average, and more fundamentally said the retirement age would be regularly reviewed in line with mortality changes.
Mr Osborne's Budget will not go down in the history books as one of the most dynamic or most radical, but he had little room for wriggle.
Only time will tell if Britain really is open for business again.
