Natalie Rowe Claims She Met Osborne’s Fiancée

One more.

Eventually Osborne’s friendship with Natalie Rowe comes to an end, with her claiming she met his then fiancée:

My pregnancy also changed the dynamics between me and my three musketeers. George became quite caring towards me. It was a particularly cold winter and sometimes George sat with me, cosy on the sofa in Redcliffe Square and rubbed my pregnant tummy – even when other people were there. George was self-conscious of his figure – he would wear loose clothes to try and hide his belly, which was a bit flabby and spongy. Every now and then I’d comment: “Why are you wearing this? To hide your jelly-belly?” and would reach over and rub it playfully. I really appreciated George’s friendship because the pregnancy wasn’t smooth. At five months, I started to dilate and have contractions – and there was some bleeding. I rushed to the hospital and doctors put a stitch at the neck of my womb to stop labour. It was a risky move but if the baby had arrived then he wouldn’t have lived. The procedure worked and so I still held out hopes of giving birth to a healthy child. Then George got engaged to Frances, his future wife. I found out when I was at Chris’s place in Pembridge Villas, Notting Hill. William was on a bender at the time and Chris and George were there with a woman whom I didn’t know. I had no idea she was George’s fiancée. We did not get on at all. Thanks to George she knew what I did and asked about my escort services. She was hostile, full of disdain for me and jealous of how friendly George and I were. Afterwards George asked: “What do you think of her?” “What do you mean?” My face told the story. He didn’t ask anything more. George was obviously making plans for his future, to become respectable. He’d certainly been privy to some wild times in his youth; not least of which would have been the infamous Bullingdon Club parties.

Osborne has not commented about the book, though his lawyers told the Mirror that Rowe was an unreliable witness. In the past he has claimed:

“A friend of mine went out with a woman called Natalie and they had a child together. I met them occasionally in the autumn of 1993 and it soon became clear 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. After rehabilitation he has now recovered and put his life back together.”

So he’s not “Joe”. Got that?

    So George was rather a nice sort of bloke? Totally unsuitable for politics and the chancellorship, then?

    So this is a completely, completely damp squib. Presumably the reptiles in the Labour Party are salivating over seamy revelations about George Osborne. Even though they also lecture us that what people did before they entered politics is irrelevant (said the Labour shadow minister who posed for pornographic pictures) and that people should not be judged by their background (Gordon Brown said that).

    The whole ‘Osborne went to naughty parties’ thing is completely irrelevant and boring.

    Saying someone is “an unreliable witness” isn’t the same as saying they are wrong or lying.

    For example, some people might say that there were several warranted Police personnel who may have been unreliable witnesses in the case of Mitchell vs Everyone.

        Can’t believe I was stupid enough to BUY the thing. Must be one of the worst books about BDSM ever written. No interesting content, no sex, nothing different just a few famous names dropped in for feeble reasons. I can only assume she is in need of money now her high class hooker days are over

    On the assumption that the most explosive and sensational stuff is always published first in this type of serialisation, this is the most pathetic, unremarkable “exposé” of a public figure I have ever seen. Woefully uninteresting and devoid of shock.

    Young people did mildly silly things and enetered into slightly risqué relationships while at university.

    Wow.

    It is a little known fact that George Osborne has never had a real job in his life.

    He has always worked within the Westminster bubble.

    Being in government should come with certain perks. The disappearing of chancers like this being one of them. If I was Osborne that woman would have been found zipped up in a suitcase months ago.

    “A man I went out with had a friend called Gideon. I met him occasionally in the autumn of 1993 and it soon became clear they had started to use drugs and become involved with the Conservative Party. Gideon became more and more addicted and began to hallucinate that he understood economics. With his other friends I tried to persuade him to seek treatment. It is my fervent prayer that after rehabilitation he may recover and the rest of us can put our lives back together.”

    Gideon has been booked for a BBC revival of ‘What’s my line’ when he gets back to UK. Of course it may morph into ‘what’s my hairline’.

    But at least he’ll be able to revive his nightly Horlicks habit.

    I did coke, he did coke, we all did coke, I whipped a few posh boys, shagged a few posh boys and everybody had a jolly good time. This is about as boring a news story as I’ve heard since the Hull Daily Mail ran a story about the number of cracks in the pavement.

Lord Glasman tells it like it is:

“The first thing is to acknowledge that Labour has been captured by a kind of aggressive public sector morality which is concerned with the individual and the collective but doesn’t understand relationships.”
