George Osborne is set to make his Autumn Statement to the House of Commons. The past week has seen a bucket-load of debate over what is going to come up, and unfortunately it looks like unremitting misery is the order of the day.

It looks like bad news for the wealthy, those on low incomes, those on benefits, and anyone who pays tax. Oh, and the economic figures aren't going to offer much light relief either.
