Oh dear. My confident prediction that George Osborne would not use “Hard Working Families” proved costly, as he went for it late on in the speech, paying off at 3/1 for punters. On the plus side, the only other Buzzword Bingo phrases he did use were “Long Term Economic Plan” (five times!) at 1/10 and the old favourite “We’re All In This Together” at 4/1.
The puzzling shade of tie left us paying out on grey, green and black.
