Re: Give us the emergency budget!

One article pointed out that by announcing his standing down, Cameron had outmaneuvered the brexiters. They were hoping that he would be the one who would have to do all the painful things and leave them with their hands clean. That's why they were so keen for him to stay. Waiting for the new budget is in part to show how unprepared the leave campaign is for its 'victory' and is the new 'There's no money left.' note. Plus the blame for all those cuts and tax hikes will be with the Brexiter (probably Boris) who wins the leadership contest rather than the Cameron putting the blame squarely and fairly were it belongs.
