The Dog that Didn’t … Where’s the OBR?

More on the spending review later, but first I’ve just been hunting for the independent forecasts from the OBR on the public finances and I can find… nada. Just when you could do with some serious independent analysis of Mr Osborne’s and Mr Alexander’s wheezes…. silence, well almost.

All OBR have published today is four very brief  reports on:

  • Labour market participation rate forecast
  • CPI inflation
  • Annually Managed Expenditure forecast by department
  • Projections of trend employment and population

Hardly worth bothering really – have they been nobbled? Cut? De-quango-ed? We should be told!
