Another u turn?
How long can the chancellor keep his job I wonder.

I will keep my fingers crossed.

GO surely has to realise his leadership ambitions are going to be out of reach?

So many back tracks over the last few months the and the expert review of this budget hasn't been exactly positive.

However surely this is also down to IDS.

I don't think they are quite that naive. So am wondering why they are doing this then "backtracking".

Wonder if it's so they can pass something else which is heinous but not "as bad'. Or distract from something.

Fanjo, I salute your cynicism. I shall keep a close eye on the news...

(for 'bad news' being buried, that is)

Quite probably Fanjo. If GO is doing this out of the goodness of his heart then I'm the Queen of Sheba.

anotherangryvoice.blogspot.co.uk/2015/02/george-osborne-genius-how-think.html?m=1 is interesting reading about GO, especially: Worse than Labour: George Osborne continually harps on about how Labour would threaten his "economic recovery" but what he doesn't tell you is that in just four years he's created more new debt than every single Labour government in history combined!

He is a dangerous idiot with too much power.

Well IDS has gone
