Oakeshott on Osborne...

Interesting article by Brian Wheeler related to the post below about politicians' U-turns and how the public perceives them (and very encouraging to read the largely sensible comments, clearly the usual suspects haven't found the thread yet!). Some - as usual unnamed - Conservative backbenchers 'have told the BBC' that Britain needed a "full-time chancellor"; "Liberal Democrat peer Lord Oakeshott said that Chancellor George Osborne needs to "focus on the day job" instead of trying to do two jobs at once" [Link]. I agree but am convinced all Osborne and Danny Alexander need do is read and think about the shit that snide EU-loving treasury civil servants seem to keep pushing to the fore; then shove it back in their faces and tell them to fuck off.
