What Do You Think Will Be In The Autumn Statement 2013?

Recommended Posts

I imagine the assault on the poor will go on, with incentives and largesse for those who can 'get the economy moving' again.

Dissonance. An alternative reality.

A Stamp Duty Holiday on houses over 600k, to compensate those that can't qualify for HTB2. LOL

More guff about hard working striver’s.

Just picture more of this: “Reordering of deckchairs on the titanic.”

My feet were wet, now up to my neck (in debt!) :unsure:.

That soft default won't feel very soft when it comes...

Yes. Some more measures to make employees easier to sack, and life just a bit less pleasant for those on benefits.

A government scheme to allow anyone to borrow automatically (at RPI+3%) to meet their energy bills, payments being taken out of their pension/paycheck/benefits.

Of course, the current uptick will be presented as a triumph of 'clearing up Labour's mess. Because a minor recovery after a long and deep recession is the best they could do..

Oh, and hidden away in the small print, a few more mechanisms to allow the rich to avoid tax. 'Clarifying the situation'.

Workfare carers. Tax breaks for grandparents providing childcare. Elimination of food and energy from the official inflation figures. Simplification of council tax bands by eliminating the top band as it penalises strivers. HTB2 extended to 1.2 million so as to be fair to London.

Looks like they will start rolling back the green taxes on energy.

If they really want a housing boom, top slicing the 3% stamp duty rate for houses over 250k, ie. you just pay 1% on the first 250k and 3% over that would immediately shift a lot of 250k sales up an average of 10k or so. 1-2% equity boost for boomers at the stroke of a pen.

So very much a pre-election budget for boomers....heating and house prices.

Green energy tax roll back will happen. Good call.

In 12 months time they will all be stood round scratching their heads wondering why prices have remained high but the energy companies are posting record profits. If much of said roll back actually gets passed onto the consumers it'll be a miracle (it will definitely happen immediately mind - bit of good PR/a pre-election justification for cutting levies and not profits, but longterm it'll make F-all difference).

Ah, that unique brand of ideology tainted with idioticy so beloved by boomers!

Helptobuy extended to garden sheds.

Help to Buy extended to Buy to Let.

"Help to Let" has a nice Osbornite ring to it, don't you think?

It may be a statement that the "I promise to pay the bearer on demand the sum of.." on each banknote is now null and void. Liquidity issues and that. Only Bitcoins may be used as legal tender from now on. Something along those lines?

Public offering of of government's Lloyds Bank share in Q2 2014. Relaunch of solvent bits of RBS under the brand name Williams and Glynn. Float early in 2015. Some kind of childcare bung to Middle Britain.
