Surely the logic of the government’s position means that George Osborne should be arrested. In the PBR debate he all but confessed to being in receipt of leaks when he said “we know”
about government plans to push VAT up to 20%. He has had the jump on the Treasury brief more than once, he is clearly conspiring with a
public official. Seize him…
UPDATE : What does Robert Peston think of those who conspire with public officials to leak sensitive information? Does it only matter when it hinders rather than helps the regime?
