Week 10: Villain – George Osborne

by George_East on March 13, 2016

Last Week’s Villain of the Week Award goes to the chancellor of the exchequer, George OsborneTory_Villain

Not exactly unfamiliar with this Award, is our loathed too clever by half chancellor.  In fact by my count this is not only his second win in  a row, but I make it the 24th time he’s won overall.

As Osborne continues the extraordinary double of missing every single economic target he sets himself but still having the media suck up to his genius (yet another indicator of just how rubbish the Corbyn-led Labour Party are at offering any opposition) we get almost daily reminders of his nastiness.

This time it was an unprovoked attack on respected Channel 4 economics editor, Paul Mason, who he described as ‘a revolutionary Marxist broadcaster’ as a way of attacking Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell.   Mason’s leftist politics are well known but the implication is that somehow this infects his journalism.  It is particularly underhand and nasty when it is being used not even as an attack or critique of Mason, but rather as a way of scoring a cheap political point against the hapless Labour opposition.

Cameron’s empty triviality as Prime Minister is one thing,  Osborne on the other hand is simply interested in his own political advancement and he doesn’t care how he achieves it.  Awful man.

An attack on Osborne and you still can’t stop taking a pop at Corbyn. FFS accept that he is the Labour leader, that blue Labour has failed and fight for -and not against a fair future.

When the school bully and his chums are in full flow the rest, if they know what’s good for them, tend to keep quiet. This does not mean that the resentment isn’t building up and bubbling away somewhere. Strangely teachers and other observers tend to tolerate and laugh off the bullies antics. The media seems to have decided that anything which comes from Corbyn’s Labour is best ignored or sneered at and whilst Dave’s Tories are slightly wicked they can still be trusted because of what they learned on their sacred playing fields. This blog increasingly reminds me of The Life of Brian. Splitters!

We are very conflicted over Corbyn, to be fair.
