Osborne’s Autumn Hidden Statement

Wed 5 December 2012, 12:32am

As this goes live the UK Chancellor will have just polished off his briefing to the Cameron cabinet on the Osborne austerity budget. But there are just some things that don’t need to be spelled out as Mr Sammy Wilson explained when speaking to the UTV here.

Sammy said that the budget arithmetic under the Barnett consequential will ensure that what’s cut on the mainland will be cut over here in equal percentage measure. That means that some deep cuts are coming our way as is a “no” to corporation tax. So what does that say for Whitehall’s view on NI.
