Osborne Delivers Rapid Growth

Ephraim Hardcastle reckon the Chancellor has been reduced to extraordinary measures to hide his bald spot, reporting this morning that Osborne is now using hair loss treatments on a daily basis. The brown shoots of a recovery are beginning to show though it is clear George must not waver from his long term plan:

1p off the price of Alpecin at the next budget?

      Longer damp hair appears thinner – massive none story scenes.
      Along side which it’s a shame to GF now relegated to reporting on ‘dead trees’ stories.
      Must try harder…

      Bollocks to Georgie Porgie’s hair, the real news is about the Yanks dumping the wreckage of the Malay plane off of Aussie land. Does make you wonder what they done with the innocent bodies now they have all the tech nerds off of the plane that they wanted tied up.

        Look sweet pee, if everyone glanced at the same newspaper, everyone would miss a valid article in the unread ones, might be an idea for you to have you blood sugar checked and your PSA checked especially if you are 40 years and onwards, could already be too late.

    It’s the grey he’s dealing with, not the bald.

    What’s wrong with being bald?

    Where are Tony Blair's Expenses says:

    The eulogies continue for Tony Benn; conviction politician blah blah blah .. He was able to say and do what he did as he was able to go back to his 3 storey mansion in Holland Park every night and close the door on the working classes.

    Letting him rest over night in the HoC Chapel is just ridiculous, this man did nothing, absolutely nothing for the working man or women.

    Can any left wing mong educate me and point out any significant piece of legislation he sponsored through parliament.

    Never has so much newsprint, air time and web space been wasted on such a political incompetent

    He’s brushed his hair for nearly an hour

    Myfanwy says:

    ” The brown shoots of a recovery are beginning to show though” vain glorious, it might be that false tanning cream that folks used to paint on themselves to show it didn’t rain where they went on holiday. Sooner or later through age most men develope hair loss it’s that testosterone thing

    Our economy is going the way of Grecian 2000

      Myfanwy says:

      Strange Teddy, but years ago in the area where was a guy who had a good head of white hair, someone must have persuaded him to use Grecian 2000 and his hair was carrot coloured. If you loose hair, go white haired you cannot turn the clock back, just accept it.

        Always look on the bright side says:

        My hair started going white at the temples in my early twenties. As a very young lawyer, I found it very useful for people to think I was older and mroe experienced than I really was. Interestingly, many decades later, I have no problem at all with baldness.

      As I said this morning

      The EU must impose travel bans and asser freezes

      Except of course for pillaging oligarchs in Laundry London

      How could we survive without their hundreds of billions of illegal money?

    Big deficits and cover-ups = recipe for disaster says:

    Q: What’s the difference between George Osborne and Gordon Brown?
    A: A matter of time


    • 20
      Axe The Telly Tax & Religion & Kill All Eco-loons says:

      Ah but whereas Brown raided private pensions with stealth taxes, Osborne is allowing pensioners to raid their own pension pots which will provide a spending boom and a nice little earner for the treasury with all that VAT on spending and the tax levied on drawdown.


      • 24
        Skeleton Bob says:

        And when that has all been blown the same pensioners will be claiming extra benefits from the state? But that will be after the hair today gone tomorrow Osborne has left the Treasury.


        • 31
          was it something I said? says:

          Labour should be delighted by this in that case. More state dependent voters to be bought with more magic money.

        ALLOWING pensioners to raid their own pensions !!! JUST WHO’S MONEY IS IT.if they want to put the lot on an outsider in the grand national it’s nobody else’s business !


        • 60
          Firm But Fair says:

          I agree.

          Just so long as they don’t ask for a penny in social security if they blow the lot because the taxpayer should not provide horse racing insurance.

        Fishy says:

        While Brown raided our pensions and stole £100bn, it was Balls who was the architect of the plunder.

        Meanwhile labour are all at sea, not knowing how to respond the liberation of pensions (expect the BBC not to probe Labour’s little difficulty anytime soon).


      • 89
        Alby says:

        Dave & Osborne have continued to steal from pensions using the same instruments Brown created.

        No difference.

    He’s been cutting too far too fast, hence the bald spot :-)

      The neocons do not want to speak about the trashing being carried out by the neo nazi Swoboda Party in Ukraine….diversions are good..

      Radio silence is the order of the day for wannabe neocons like Guido

      Just as there must be radio silence about 2500 further illegal houses in Ysraeli occupied Palestine

      No sanctions there, of course..just pure hypocrisy and ethnic cleansing and illegality


  23. 46
    Reality Cheque says:

    Keen acumen on the pension access though few will benefit(usual Web of rowing back) and just how do you have an income of £12k without work or the state pension, Crosby is clearly pulling the strings now rather than the fucked Etonians, Boris no longer any asset and a negative outside the SE.

    Tory majority just visible probably with Limps again as the taste of power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely.

    Wouldn’t you agree Vlad?

      Everyone in Chingford says:

      Boris never was an asset. He told lies to the public about things they could demonstrably see weren’t true.

    EU measures agreed against tax evasion today…

    Except, of course, for Cayman Islands, Channel Islands, Virgin Islands and Gibraltar – British dependencies

    What would Laundry London’s banks and bent lawyers do without the hundreds of billions they launder and hide for the world’s criminals?

      Do give us a break

      That hang dong face is just too much

      I suggest you go to Kiev and report on the thuggrry of the neo nazis the US have put into power

      That would be real news

      Or perhaps report on the atrocities of the jihadis in Syria supported by the criminal US and UK

    Bingo! Cutting the bingo tax and beer duty to help hard-working people do more of the things they enjoy.

Ralph Miliband on the English…

“The Englishman is a rabid nationalist. They are perhaps the most nationalist people in the world.”

Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
