Why George Osborne's headline-grabbing claims are wrong | ESRC press coverage | Scoop.it

Second, that an army of modest earners have been sucked into the higher income tax rate bracket. Third, that £25bn of further spending cuts will be needed in the next parliament. But don't take any of those propositions at face value.
