Rishi Sunak defends budget amid claim it will plunge 500,000 more people into poverty – politics live
Chancellor defends budget after Joseph Rowntree Foundation says decisions on universal credit will put half a million more into poverty‘Families are struggling’: Britons react to Rishi Sunak’s 2021 budgetSunak flags major tax rises as Covid bill tops £400bnLiving standards to stagnate after Covid crisis, warns thinktankBudget calculator 2021: what does it mean for me?Coronavirus – latest global updates 8.57am GMT Good morning. We live in an age of instant news, but budgets are political events that take time to analyse in full and the day after is often the point when their full implications start to become a lot clear. Today is no exception. Rishi Sunak, the chancellor, has been doing the morning broadcast interview round, but as he’s been on air thinktanks have been out with new reports saying his measures will increase poverty.The Joseph Rowntree Foundation, a thinktank focusing on poverty, says Sunak’s decision to go ahead with the reversal of the £20 per week universal credit uplift, albeit delayed for six months, will plunge 500,000 people into poverty. It says:The government’s decision to cut universal credit and working tax credit in six months – just as the furlough scheme ends and unemployment peaks – will pull 500,000 people including 200,000 children into poverty as we head into winter.The OBR’s latest forecasts show that unemployment is expected to increase by a further 500,000 people between now and the peak towards the end of the year. Despite that, the government has chosen to cut the main rate of unemployment support to its lowest level since 1990.The poorest households will face a 7 per cent fall in income in the second half of 2021-22 due to the removal of the £20 a week universal credit uplift, which will take the basic level of benefits back to levels not seen since the early 1990s at the same time as unemployment is due to peak.

Ian St John memories, Michèle Mouton and Stephen Hendry's return | Classic YouTube
This week’s roundup also features an on-board trip around Le Mans in 1956 and Shaquille O’Neal taking a nap1) Ian St John died this week at the age of 82. It was the Saint’s extra-time header against Leeds at Wembley that won Liverpool their first FA Cup in 1965. Signed in 1961, and in partnership with Roger Hunt, he was the star forward of Bill Shankly’s team which established the club as one of English football’s best, as seen here in a TV tribute to his old mentor broadcast in 1981. After spells managing Motherwell and Portsmouth, Saint moved into a TV career. Here he is crossing the Merseyside divide to attend Everton training before the 1984 FA Cup final. It was as co-presenter as Saint and Greavsie that he made his fame. Here the pair are joined by Bobby Robson, Alex Ferguson and future Sky News man Jeremy Thompson to preview an elaborate-looking draw for the 1986 World Cup. Saint was joined by a very different-looking Greavsie for one memorable segment of the show. Here’s a couple of full episodes from 25 March 1989 and 5 January 1991 with lots of clips here. And who can forget the 1992 Rumbelows Cup quarter-final draw, where Saint allowed one Donald Trump to fill in?2) Can you resist this piece of backheeled genius from Notts County’s Elisha Sam?
