Osborne Drops Schrödinger’s Dead Cat

OSBORNE-DEAD-CAT

Osborne is finally dropping the Remainers’ dead cat – which was expected by many next week – the idea is it is so visceral, so extreme, the papers will talk about little else. It may well work on the broadsheets, they may well talk about little else. The Times leads on his dire warnings:

  • 2p added to the 20p basic rate of income tax
  • 3p added to the 40p higher rate of income tax
  • 5p on the rate of inheritance tax, taking it from 40p to 45p
  • A 5% jump in fuel and alcohol duties
  • £2 billion cut from the pensions bill
  • 2% cuts to the “protected” NHS, schools and defence budgets
  • 5% cuts in budgets like policing, transport and councils

This is the Remainers’ ultimate “Project Fear” gambit, a quantum politics derived nuclear bomb – the Anti-Vow – whereas the Scottish Referendum’s Solemn Vow promised milk and honey, the Brexit Anti-Vow is for hell and damnation. Alongside Alistair Darling, George Osborne will swear the political establishment’s fiscal pain vow on a scale not seen even in Greece. All because we voted to change our trading arrangements over a 2 year negotiation after implementing Article 50 of the EU Treaty. Only one gigantic logical flaw. Following a Brexit vote he won’t be Chancellor and there would never be a majority in parliament for this even if he were. This is the political equivalent of Schrödinger’s dead cat. When we open the Brexit box it won’t even be there…
