Autumn Statement 2014: Robinson and Peston reaction

The BBC's political and economics editors give their reaction to the announcements in the Autumn Statement.

Nick Robinson said some of the changes were "real electioneering" and the chancellor had his "eyes on an election.

He spoke to Andrew Neil about the so-called "Google tax" and stamp duty changes, which he described as the "Tories' own version of the mansion tax".

Robert Peston went through some of the deficit and borrowing projections, but said the government had a "history of not hitting its budget targets".
