under-funded tax cuts as he challenges elements of the party who are pushing for
In a speech to be delivered today Osborne will commit the Tories to matching
Labour’s spending plans for the next two years and review spending in 2010-2011.

‘I suspect the chancellor of the Exchequer will never recover a reputation
for competence,’ Osborne will say.
