Falling flat on your face George
"The problem facing western democracies is doubt about the ability of government to deliver rising living standards" so wrote George Osborne in January. He went on " My argument is that the way to address this doubt is not to run away from capitalism but to run towards it". Since when George has blundered into one mess after another, one might argue the most spectacular of which was his reduction of the 50p tax rate which blew out of the water the myth that "We are all in it together". He (& a lot of other Tories) seem unable to grasp the extent of the general anger at there being one set of rules for an incompetent group of money men an another set of rules for the rest of us.
