The Chancellor should use his Autumn Statement to reward families on modest incomes who have quietly endured squeezed living standards during austerity.
Including, when will living standards start to rise, will there be new money for the NHS and how much more austerity is Osborne planning?
Rather than using the forecast structural surplus to pay down the national debt, the government should invest it in science, skills and childcare.
The Autumn Statement was never meant to become a "second Budget" but Osborne has made it one. And the Treasury Select Committee is right to say so.
Disability campaigners accuse Osborne of misleading the public over his welfare cuts.
Sixty per cent of welfare cuts made in this parliament will fall on the working poor.
The small print shows that the economy will shrink in the current quarter and that unemployment will rise next year.
The measures announced today by Osborne will increase output by a meagre 0.1 per cent.
The results of Mr Osborne’s strategy were both predictable and predicted. But he has continued regardless.
The Chancellor glosses over the fact that working people feel the brunt of his benefit cuts as much as the jobless.
