  • The politics of the Budget

    28 OCT 2021 · Adam Boulton and guests analyse the good, the bad and the bubbly from this week's Budget statement by Rishi Sunak. Big spending commitments in line with Brown and Blair rather than Osborne and Cameron - and big tax rises to boot, with the tax burden now at a level not seen since 1949. A big boost for workers on Universal Credit and a business rate discount for shops, restaurants and gyms.. But with the threat of inflation on the horizon - and the promise of tax cuts by 2024 - did the Chancellor do enough to convince the public to share his optimism? Joining Adam this week are the former senior adviser to Phillip Hammond and Sajid Javid - and now partner at Flint Global - Tim Pitt, the Oxford economist and author Linda Yueh and Sky's chief political correspondent Jon Craig. #AllOutPolitics

Joining Adam this week are the Conservative MP and member of the Covid Recovery Group, Harriett Baldwin; the Labour MP Angela Eagle and Sky's chief political correspondent Jon Craig. #AllOutPolitics
