George Osborne

Earlier: Lots of interest in this: UK Finance Minister George Osborne is about to make the country’s “Autumn Statement” which is an outline of budget and economic plans.

The UK has been at the forefront of austerity, and the effects have been bad: Weak growth, and mediocre progress on the budget.

We’ll have details here LIVE.

UPDATE: The statement has begun, and so far it doesn’t sound like he’s saying much of substance. Just generalities about the economy.

We’ll have more as it comes right here.
