Impact of mini-Budget on your money

The unveiling of the “Plan for Growth” prompted the pound and the FTSE 100 to both fall sharply amid fears that the proposals drive up debt and fuel inflation.

The Institute of Fiscal Studies accused Mr. Kwarteng of a reckless gamble on the country’s finances and warned that he “bets the house” on the tax cuts.

In a special episode of Chopper’s Politics podcast, Christopher Hope unpacks the announcement with Gordon Rayner and Tony Diver.

Mr Kwarteng said the bonfire of bureaucracy would lead to “a simpler system” that is easier for companies to navigate.

As Matt Oliver reports, he said government departments have been ordered to review all retained EU regulations by December 2023 – at which point they will be “automatically” lifted unless changed or replaced.

In a whirlwind of statement, Krwarteng basically drove the economic orthodoxy adopted by all conservative governments since 2010 hard and in just 30 minutes tore up the tax-evasive legacy of his predecessor Rishi Sunak.

In her analysis, Janet Daley says it was “nothing short of a revolution in the way the government used fiscal policy to bolster a political philosophy”.

And Jeremy Warner concludes it was “a breath of fresh air” that put the wealth-creating enterprise at the center again.
