During his speech at the Conservative party conference the Chancellor has ruled out any 'mansion tax', a policy their coalition partners wanted to see to tax the better off.
Mr Osborne said; "It would be sold as a mansion tax, but once the tax inspector has his foot in the door you'd soon find most of the homes in the country labelled a mansion. It's not a mansion tax it's a home tax and this party of home ownership will have no truck with it."
The Chancellor's surprise plan for swapping job rights for shares is praised as "innovative", but what does it mean for the average worker?
The Chancellor told the assembled delegates that they were still, "all in it together," and that he was right to cut the 50p tax rate.
The Government is to press ahead with plans to slash an extra £10 billion from the welfare budget by 2016-17, the Chancellor has said.
