FLASHBACK: Osborne Statement On Natalie Rowe Allegations

George Osborne said in October 2005:

“The allegations are completely untrue and dredging up a photo from when I was 22 years old is pretty desperate stuff.

This is merely part of a smear campaign to divert attention from the issues that matter in this leadership contest and I am confident people will not be distracted by this rubbish.

Twelve years ago a friend of mine went out with a woman called Natalie and they had a child together.

I met them together occasionally in the autumn of 1993, and it soon became clear that my friend had started to use drugs.

He became more and more addicted and I saw his life fall apart.

With his other friends I tried to persuade him to seek treatment.

Eventually he did and after a long time in rehabilitation he has now recovered and put his life back together.

I am very proud of the battle he has fought and won. 

That is, and always has been, the sum total of my connection with this woman.

It was a stark lesson to me at a young age of the destruction which drugs bring to so many people’s lives. 

Ever since then I have believed that tough, realistic policies to tackle the evil of drugs should be one of the top priorities of any government.

I now want to respect the privacy of my friend who is now happily recovered and working full-time abroad, and the privacy of his young child.

For the sake of that child I think we should leave them alone.”

He’s up in the House at 15:30. First one to shout “Louise” gets a spanking…

    Some say we are all socialist in our teens and early 20s, then most people grow up when they relise what the real world looks like.

    In my eyes he has no reason to resign.

    unless it can be proven that he still indulges in these activertis.

    yeah, right.. says:

    Drugs arent evil per se.

    Making them illegal so that trade in them attracts the worst sort of scum would appear to be evil, given that it condemns large sections of (poorer) society to have their lives blighted by those who need to steal and rob to fund their habit.

    Portugal seems to have done the legalisation thing without too many problems. Ok, so its economy is on its knees but I doubt that was ever caused by drug addicts.

    So George knew that Coulson was hacking phones.

    Coulson ran a spoiler to the Mirror story in his NotW using hacked details thereby protecting George.

    George then persuades Dave to give the now shamed Coulson the top Conservative communication job.

    Then Coulson tells the world that he knew nowt about phone hacking at the NotW while George knew all the time that Coulson was intimate with phone hacking.

    One could be forgiven into thinking that George was on drugs.

    So he lied…… Institutional corruption reigns at Westminster. Clegg was going to shut the gates and sort it out, but then again, who could trust a word he says.

    Clegg wrote that “all nations have a cross to bear, and none more so than Germany with its memories of Nazism. But the British cross is more insidious still. A misplaced sense of superiority, sustained by delusions of grandeur and a tenacious obsession with the last war, is much harder to shake off”.[38][39] The article was dusted down during the 2010 General Election campaign when the Daily Mail interpreted the article as being a “Nazi slur on Britain” . I think Clegg should leave office and the country.

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
