This week, Helen and Stephen are joined by Staggers Editor, Julia Rampen, to discuss the winners and losers in this year’s Autumn Statement. How much jam really was there for the just-about-managings? And why is that concept both so inclusive and so un-helpful? Helen and Stephen also discuss Tony Blair – the former Labour leader’s credibility problem and why the left must reconcile with its past.
– Now read Julia on why this is the worst decade for a pay rise.
– Stephen on Philip Hammond’s sleight of hand.
– George Eaton on the end of the age of imperial Chancellors.
– And Jason’s Cowley’s interview with former Prime Minister, Tony Blair.
