George Osborne's speech has made it perfectly clear why Wayne Rooney wants to leave Man United.
Rooney obviously had an inside whisper that the pension age was going to be raised to 66 by 2020.
By then Young Wayne will be old Wayne - in footballing terms - 32 years old and his best earning years behind him. That is surely why he is pushing for a move now so he can increase his earning capacity from his current basic of about £3million a year to about £10 million.
Maybe more important to Rooney wasn't the result of the Spending Review by the High Court decision that a pre-nuptial agreement is binding.
The court found in favour of German paper-heiress in the case of a German paper company heiress.
Katrin Radmacher's whose ex-husband Nicolas Granatino went to the court after appeal judges slashed his divorce settlement from more than £5m to £1m.
He lost 8-1 - not the sorting of ‘spanking' in footballing terms Rooney has been on the end of, and of course we don't know if he has a pre-nup with the lovely Colleen, who no doubt was glued to her screen watching Mr Osborne's review.
And what of the rest of The Spending Review - well it was also a bit of a budget on the quiet with all the numbers we had come to expect in terms of cutting costs, and a few other measures designed to raise revenue.
So a bigger clampdown on tax avoidance will raise another £900m and might make life difficult for those clients earning more than six figures annually who have used legitimate tax-efficient schemes in the past.
HMRC tends to pick on ‘soft' targets in situations like this - that's essentially clients who are not wealthy enough to avoid dedicated tax lawyers.
For the rest of us, we'll probably know of someone in the health service, or the state sector who will be worried about their jobs and until the fine detail on cuts in various departments starts to emerge in the coming months.
Many of these jobs are due to go over the next 4-5 years and in reality will be through early retirement or natural wastage so the pain may not be as severe at the figures suggest.
In political terms the Coalition Government has tried to portray the cuts in a more palatable way, partially by leaking most of the big numbers ahead of today's announcement, and partially by saying the previous Labour administration would have cut harder and deeper.
You pay your money and your takes your choice about how you view the whole review, and the really interesting part comes tomorrow with details of the bank levy.
And as for Wayne Rooney as he nurses an ankle injury, I wonder what he thinks about the government pressing on with the NEST pension scheme - it probably won't be a problem he'll have after he's been put out to stud!
