Autumn Statement winners and losers

Oh dear. My confident prediction that George Osborne would not use “Hard Working Families” proved costly, as he went for it late on in the speech, paying off at 3/1 for punters. On the plus side, the only other Buzzword Bingo phrases he did use were “Long Term Economic Plan” (five times!) at 1/10 and the old favourite “We’re All In This Together” at 4/1.

The puzzling shade of tie left us paying out on grey, green and black.
