UK Finance Minister George Osborne is set to unveil the budget on Wednesday, just weeks after the country was downgraded by Moody's amid sluggish economic growth.

According to a number of reports, Osborne will cut government department budgets while announcing some new infrastructure spending. However, he will stick to the country's austerity program.

The program has been criticized by the opposition Labour party and the International Monetary Fund. Osborne has insisted the country should stay on course and reduce its deficit and public debt in order to keep confidence in the bond markets.

But with the economy on the cusp of a triple-dip recession, do you think the government should change course?
