    Four-eyed English Genius says:

    Cut taxes, cut spending, except on the armed forces. Simples!

  10. 10
    Prue Dence says:

    Windmills, Foreign Aid, EU fees, Cash for plumbers, Pilgrims, Olympics, Leveson Inquisitions, the BBC and Tony Blair. The country simply can not afford these luxuries anymore.

    bergen says:

    He should look at Geoffrey Howe’s 1981 budget- genuine cuts in the middle of a recession that paved the way for a decade of above trend growth.

  12. 12
    Ed Balls-Up says:

    Yvette asked me how many other women I’d slept with before her, and I was determined to be honest with her: nine. She seemed satisfied with that and dropped the subject. Thank fuck she didn’t ask me about the men, corpses, animals, or that halibut!

  13. 13
    Ed Balls says:

    Or my wrist

    Another Engineer says:

    Can we just admit that GDP figures are a total nonsense, and in no way measure the value output of the economy? Time to stop this obsession.

    Otherwise some idiot is going to suggest that government spending on pointless schemes contributes to our wealth.

  15. 15
    Inflatable Dartboard says:

    And me

  16. 16
    David Guake MP says:

    GDP would be accurate if it wasn’t for all the rain over the last Qtr stopping the window cleaners collecting their cash.

    Dave is a wet! says:

    Useless twat Osborne should have resigned months ago. Time for Cameron to fire him.

    No Chloe Smith today?


    I’m sure there’s a youtube.

    Only 18 days to go until the Olympics are over! Yay! says:

    Other unaffordable luxuries: HS2 railway, Email-snooping-system and 650 MPs.

    Someone with cojones would be a start

  23. 23
    Reconstruct says:

    Absolutely pathetic. Even after this news, he can manage to say precisely nothing about freeing up supply-side constraints, almost all of which are imposed by the government.

    Instead of that, we get garbage about ‘getting banks to lend’ and ‘infrastructure projects’.

    Really, how after all this time, after all this pain, can he not understand that (and I’m going to shout here – no apologies) IT’S THE SUPPLY-SIDE, YOU IDIOT!

    Gordoom Braun says:

    That Osborne is such an amateur.
    Always blame someone else! Always! never admit to anything bad, take credit for anything good. He’s made a real howler today.


    Repeat x 1000.

    The important things in life are the AV and the Lords reform.

    Do you mean public school toffs like Blair, Balls, Clarke, Harman….

    Looks like Billy Hague is going to be the new man in the Treasury

    Nobody cares. The sun is shining and the benefits roll in.

    Frank's son says:

    I thought George looked like he had gained a few pounds looking at his chubby cheeks. So I’m guessing he isn’t worrying or losing sleep while all around him crashes and burns.

    I don’t know the answers to our economic woes, I’m not sure anyone does, least of all George.

  39. 39
    Dealing is the Way to Go says:

    Don’t think old George understands what supply side means. He thinks it’s side of the car wheel well where his SpAd collects his ‘supply’ from on Friday nights. Still the old luv is looking rather truculent on it don’t you think? More and more the look of an old Regency Dandy gone to seed (Dave is little chubster too these days).

  40. 40
    Time 2 CTRL, ALT & DEL says:

    has this anything to do with Jonahs visit to downing st yesterday?

    more likely is 13 odd years before.

    And then Dave and Gidean just keep going

    Some Twat Up North says:

    If Gideon was in the Police he’d promoted to a level of incompetence then got rid of.

    Well the first bits done, now get rid of the unqualified balloon.

    Correction “Inner tube” he’s thicker than a balloon.

  45. 45
    Any Fucking MP of any Party, they are all the fucking same says:

    Paying in Cash is evil.

    Paying for a taxpayer-subsidised meal using your taxpayer-provided MP’s tax-free expense account is OK though, indeed, almost saintly troughing.

    The idea that those vulgarians should keep the money they earn instead of keeping me in clover makes me feel quite faint. I think I’ll have a lie down.

    Phil says:

    Things will not get better until the one million jobsworths Brown hired in the public sector are fired,Quango’s culled to the absolute minimum and upwards of two million illegal immigrants and failed asylum seekers are expelled permanently from these shores.That should be the starting point so FFS George get on with it otherwise we will get an even bigger disaster when Milliband and his merry men get in in 2015 and try and finish the job Brown started.

    He’s been doing that for 2 years. The spending cuts killed the economy.

    He could save £20B from leaving EU & £34B by getting rid of the quangos which are the Brussels gov in UK

    And 3 million unemployed. Never again – let’s get the pro-growth Eds back where they belong to deal with this disaster properly.

    Guido’s clearly with us, given his attacks on the Tories will only result in a Labour government.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
