While his mantra is that he is dealing with our debts, the fact is George Osborne is actually borrowing more for failure and has led our economy into the longest and deepest slump since the 1870s.
He is not only incompetent and wildly out of touch, Osborne has been disastrous for our communities, with half a million of our friends and neighbours now relying on food banks to get by.
Despite all the evidence that austerity is making things worse not better, Osborne is slashing billions more from government departments, including cutting the living standards of hard-working public servants for many years to come.
By ploughing ahead with more cuts, instead of investment to help our economy to grow, Osborne has proved he is a failed chancellor who is putting politics before the needs of the country.
Shadow financial secretary to the Treasury Chris Leslie writes for ITV News in response to the Chancellor's Spending Review.
While the Conservatives and Lib Dem strategies are clear enough, Labour's response to government cuts is not yet obvious.
By excluding pensions and the benefits associated with the economic cycle, Osborne has put an automatic cap on a narrow range of benefits.
