  44. 70
    Sres says:

    So Margaret Hodge, tax avoider, wants to come down hard on tax avoiders. I agree, perhaps she should put pressure on her families company to pay their fair share of tax?

    • 99
      Tony Eden from Eton says:

      You have tax avoidance because of poor fiscal legislation passed by Parliamentarians .

      The only time they show anything remotely close to attention to detail is when they are making expenses claims .

  45. 71
    Busted Nokia says:

  50. 76
    Blinky has to make a formal apology says:

    Anyone else notice Blinky say “you’re lying” to Cameron over and over again after he quoted Burnham? Isn’t that a clear contravention of Parliamentary code of conduct? I’ll have the video uploaded soon.

  51. 77
    Balance Sheet says:

    The problem with corporation tax is that it is based on profits and any accountant worth his salt can easily turn a booked profit into a book loss.

  52. 79
    Red Egg Millitit..... says:

    Good Scottish name :)

  53. 80
    Busted Nokia says:

    so students are punished for the errors of the bankers. The banks went bust and should have been left alone. Capitalism works – if allowed to by the government.

  54. 82
    Mine d'Boggles says:

    Reduce deficit? How about a bonfire of the Quangos – oh! sorry, those are your pals aren’t they?

  55. 83

  62. 92
    Busted Nokia says:

    The right track – no no no. Just look at the increasing borrowing – out spending Brown.

    The gilt market – a joke – a bubble waiting to break.

  63. 93
    Dick Scracther says:

    OBR = total waste of money – scrap it. Just pissing in the wind.

  64. 94
    Dick Scratcha says:

    These forecasts are absolute bollocks. No. one. knows.

  65. 95
    Anonymous says:

    To paraphrase Osborne, he’s going to initiate a recovery by raising taxes. And then wonder why it doesn’t work.

  66. 96
    Dick Scratcha says:

    On that logic, please sack a few million public sector plodders.

  67. 97
    Busted Nokia says:

    he should have said “better placed to weather the storm” as per Gordon Brown. Nobody believes you Gideon.

    Busted Nokia says:

    How will we pay the interest on the debt when our interest rates rise?

    loss of credibility has already occurred.

  71. 103
    Dick Scratcha says:

    Debt is debt. Whether is structural or not is unimportant. It’s still Gov over-spending.

  72. 104
    ***No News Is Good News*** says:

  80. 113
    Dick Scratcha says:

    £2bn pa = fuck all

  81. 114
    Dick Scratcha says:

  82. 115
    Dick Scratcha says:

    Pensions – what about the bastard judges tho? We’re all in this together. Bollocks.

  83. 116
    Dick Scratcha says:

    Proud of giving pensioners 2.5% !!! We cannot afford it numb nuts!

  84. 117
    Dick Scratcha says:

    Capital allowance should be unlimited & permanent. For tax capex should = opex.

  85. 118
    Dick Scratcha says:

    Corp tax change only helps businesses making £300k+ profit. Most don’t.

  86. 119
    Dick Scratcha says:

    So why have a budget now in Feb?

  87. 121
    Victoria Sponge says:

  88. 123
    Fact Hunt says:

    Lets get this straight Bollocks. I’d rather have white hot needles inserted into my eyes than have you within 10,000 miles of the nation’s cheque book.

  90. 127
    its bleak in sunderland says:

    The Autumn Statement more fudge instead of grasping the nettle and forcing diwn public spending,especially welfare,Osborne dodges the teal issues short term thinking looking at the next election which they are unlikely to gain an overall majority oh for Milton Friedman.

    • 130
      Loopy Lou says:

      I do not understand what Mr Osborne is talking about .

      On 29 November 2011 he said the economy was recovering thanks to his June 2010 budget;

      He said then that the OBR had significantly revised down its projection of the trend of growth. He said too the Government was taking action to ensure it continued to meet its fiscal targets and protect the economy;

      He said he was going to eliminate the structural deficit within 5 years and to have debt as a proportion of GDP falling by 2015 because this would give the markets hope about the UK .

      Has he been sleeping at the wheel ?

  91. 128
    its bleak in sunderland says:

    What Balls say is totally irrelevant turn the sound down has nothing to offer but more debt one day even those in Rotherham and my own neck of the wood will wake up and smell the coffee about Labour

  92. 129
    Fact Hunt says:

    I’d be losing my temper if I had to sit and listen to your bollocks, Bollocks.

  93. 131
    Fact Hunt says:

    Osborne might be a weapons grade twat but you have to say he had Blinky for breakfast.

  94. 132
    Lost in Clacton says:

    What is that Osborne fella doing with the NHS ?

  95. 137
    Confused says:

    The people are blowing the trumpets around the city walls.
    Are we listening??
    Who the fuck said that.!!!!!

  96. 138
    Anonymous says:

    Isa cash allowances are going up !

    These tax free accounts are the biggest rip off ever devised and promulgated by Labour and Conservatives alike .

    The accounts deliberately pay crap rates of interest . If you have savings you would be a lot better paying down your mortgage .

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
