Pre-Budget Report Cabinet

The Prime Minister’s Official Spokesman (PMOS) told journalists that at the Chancellor had told Cabinet this morning that: "In a year when the UK came face-to-face with the full force of global economic change, the pre-budget report would show how the economic policy framework we had established in 1997, was passing the test of stability. The report would set out the long terms reforms and long term investments now needed to build on that hard-won stability, meet the demands of British people and make the most of the opportunities of globalisation, including investing in science, skills, enterprise and creativity, making affordable housing available to young people and increasing support for hard-working families."

Asked what the Chancellor meant when he said support for hard-working families, the PMOS said that it was better to wait for the reporting parliament.

    Moving the goal posts is not managing a budget.

    Using this logic I oscillate between being a millionaire and a pauper several times each day.
