Give us the emergency budget!

I think it's a bit rich to wait months with an emergency budget.

The pound has plummeted, tax receipts will already be lower while borrowing has gotten more expensive due to the UK's downgraded credit rating. The chancellor will now need to increase borrowing, at a higher cost, to try and keep things ticking over as best as possible but we are kept in the dark about his budget plans.

I understand he doesn't want to bring the bad news that is not of his making. He should resign immediately and hand over the reigns to a successor from the Leave camp of his party. That means that at least the bringing of the bad news and the responsibility rests with a single person.
