Safe Hands Harrison

As Guido reported in his Sun column yesterday, congratulations are due to the man known as the Chancellor’s “brain”, Rupert Harrison, on the birth of his son. Returning to work following 3 weeks paternity leave, the Treasury whizz kid has been christened by his boss George Osborne as “safe hands Harrison”. After the midwife was delayed on the way to the home-birth, Harrison delivered the baby himself.

    “the Treasury whizz kid”

    He’s not in any way responsible for the national debt soaring to around 90pc of GDP, then?

        How dare you! My family has owned the banks for centuries. They are totally blameless. It is all the fault of those greasy oiks who work the counters – nothing to do with investment bankers who are all good chums of mine from my days as Head Boy at Eton.

      There appears to be a general chatter that there is no way out for Yeo

      of course there is a way out, he is an MP supported by other MP’s who do not want ‘THE RULES” changing

      It all has to get worse before it gets better

      Peter Mandelstone was a good example of an MP

    Damn! Why did I never think of that? I mean, I came out of Downing St in a cardigan and holding a mug of coffee to look like an ordinary bloke, you know, a pretty straight sorta guy. I should have told Alistair to tell everyone I personally delivered Leo. Fuck. Still, all the millions in my various offshore accounts will keep and Cherie comforted. Thank you, dead British troops and dead Iraqis!

    George has got this Chancellor job well weighed off. He only comes out two times a year and on the rare occasion Britain does the Olympics.

    He (Rupert Harrison) looks like just another brown-nosing bag carrier to me.

    Still, I suppose 3 weeks paternity leave and £150K pa must make it all worthwhile.
