The distributional effects of the Autumn Statement
The Chancellor slipped in the “we are all in it together” mantra right at the end of his speech.
But the Treasury’s own figures do not exactly bear this out. This chart is taken from the Treasury’s distributional analysis of the Autumn Statement.
This is a case where a picture is worth a thousand words (at least my words which trade at a pretty depressed rate). I wonder which deciles the Chancellor’s target voters are in.
