The government is running out of chances to change the course of politics.

Today’s Autumn Statement was one of them. It was billed by PM Rishi Sunak and Chancellor, Jeremy Hunt, as a tax-cutting budget, a reward for the tough economic decisions they’d taken earlier.

But have they really cut your taxes? And is the economic situation really much improved since they told us there was no room for cutting taxes?

Forget the spin, this is what the Autumn Statement really told us about where our economy and politics is going next.
