"While it is absolutely vital that the government continues with its intention to reduce public spending and cut the budget deficit, we should no longer seek to reach a budget surplus by the end of the parliament," Mrs May said.

Now the chancellor has said he agrees, arguing that the government must be "realistic" about its fiscal targets and that austerity policies could be eased.

2. It's the abandonment of the surplus target; no concrete easing of the austerity measures yet

but let's hope it means they won't impose anything more, and will do some more spending in some areas.
