Philip Hammond effectively ended austerity today with a £25billion Budget splurge that abolished stamp duty for most first time buyers and pumped £3billion into preparing for Brexit.

The Chancellor ditched his 'Spreadsheet Phil' reputation for tight money management as he fought to save his job - turning on the spending taps to meet a bewildering array of challenges.

Despite the OBR fiscal watchdog slashing growth forecasts, Mr Hammond ploughed £2.8billion more into the NHS, £1.5billion into heading off anger about the new Universal Credit rollout, and paved the way for significant public sector pay rises.

You heard the news, lads? Freewheelin' Phil has saved the day! Austerity is over!
