Mrs Osborne on George’s Diet

Both Osborne and Balls are on the celebrity 5:2 diet, though Guido hears not everyone was entirely happy with the chunky Chancellor’s austerity effort to cut his waist size. After a female aide changed Osborne’s hair and now his slimming regime, his wife Frances was overheard exclaiming: “If anyone is going to put my husband on a diet, it’s me.”

    A little person says:

    Village Idiot says:

    ..Maybe the diet does not mean food?

  12. 12
    Ed Balls says:

    5:2 ?

    So do I eat 3 days and starve 8?

  15. 15
    altruism in industry says:

    Paddy from Paddy Power says:

    We are opening a book on the size of Mrs Osborne’s wedge.

    It is just a bit of harmless fun to cheer everyone up during these austere times of war.

    The public says:

    Dear BBc,
    i see that Milibaum man was on again! Doing some feeble routine about a Costa Coffe crisis.
    it was not remotely amusing.
    Please stop putting him on the air. He is awful and upsets our cats.

    Yours sincerely,

    The British Public

  23. 23
    cornwall storms says:

    I just wonder whether it is because they keep getting plied with free meals in the hope they will help advertise eating establishments.

  24. 24
    Ryan from Ryanair says:

    10 euros says her wedge is bigger than Mrs O’Leary’s.

    RomaBob.... working hard for you! says:

    He should take some advice from Hattie, she allegedly gave up the PIE’s :)

  27. 27

    Should stay on the 5:2 –

    5 facefuls of black minge

    Diane Abbot says:

    Just because I occasionally eat at Rhythm Kitchen, and occasionally promote Rhythm Kitchen does not mean that I actually endorse Rhythm Kitchen or advertise Rhythm Kitchen. In fact if Rhythm Kitchen offer me free Rhythm Kitchen food, I often say to Rhythm Kitchen “only if I do not have to mention Rhythm Kitchen”. Then Rhythm Kitchen usually give me the food whether I mention Rhythm Kitchen or indeed any other restaurant that may look like Rhythm Kitchen or sound like Rhythm Kitchen.

    Ed Balls says:

    That’s what I and the Reverend Flowers were thinking.

  33. 33
    Peter Grimes says:

    And the Adam’s apple-hiding choker is a dead giveaway. Ed Bollox’ husband has to wear one all the time!

  34. 34
    Leon from Brussels says:

    For a supposedly top ranking politician Hattie is next to useless.

    She should not be hiding herself away. She should be getting her finger out and giving that speech.

    How the hell women will get on in Westminster with her as a role model is beyond me.

  35. 35
    Nigella says:

    They hide the finger bruises

    I continue to be astonished at the carefree attitude of politicians, for example Salmond, whilst talking about very serious matters. I wonder if they might be on some sort of prescription medication.

  43. 43
    Peter Grimes says:

    Does Ed Bollox wear one too, then? Can’t say I’ve noticed ‘cos he normally wears a collar and tie.

    C O (ϗ) says:

    Had exactly the same thought when I saw the headline, and was surprised about the 5:2 diet content. Sure this isn’t a mixing ratio ?

    McCain rules out Military options in Ukraine. Well that’s that then. Unless Herman takes the EU to war.

  57. 57

    That explains Salmond’s decades long attack of the munchies.

  58. 58
    cornwall storms says:

    I see r u s s i a has given u k r aine bases in c r i m e a a 3am deadline to surrender or face an attack.

    C O (Ξ3) says:

    U bases are surrounded – under siege.

    Bases are likely sustainable for a while with services cut.

    They will need to make the first move – either fight or surrender.

    Finland gets it:

    Next problem is U itself.

    Nat Gas prices are going up, and according to RTRS, U has 4 months of gas in reserve which should meet export demands:


    Gold currently + ~$25

    Top weight-loss tip for British patriots:

    If you spend the next 198 days fighting like LIONS to save our UNITED KINGDOM, then you’re bound to burn a few calories in the process.

    You can treat yourself to a dram of single-malt and a Tunnock’s caramel wafer once the job’s done.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
