Team Osborne Tell Their Backstories

It’s Team Osborne day in Birmingham today. And we’re getting a lot of back stories from the Chancellor’s loyal lieutenants. Sajid Javid told a previously unhead story about being the son of an immigrant bus drive who became a banker and then joined the cabinet. Liz Truss talked about her lefty academic parents taking her on protest marches and Matt Hancock lifted the lid on life growing up on tough front line of the internet revolution at his mum’s internet business. It certainly seemed like a coordinated effort for Team Osborne to show some ankle. Curious timing; incidentally Boris arrives at 6. 

Guido preferred Saj’s tale from growing up that he told to the Tech Central fringe event last night:

“I stuck in one of the holes. Nothing happened. So I stuck it in the other hole, and bang, I went flying across the room.”

For context, he was talking about his neon screwdriver
