Osborne Given “Sh*t” Room With No View

osborne

George Osborne has been given a less desirable office in Portcullis House after moving out of Number 11. The former Chancellor has decamped to the fourth floor of PCH and will take residence in the room previously used by Boris. The move is being seen as another humiliating slap by the new regime – the office is usually given to mid-ranking MPs who have only been around for a few years, not someone with Osborne’s pedigree. One PCH veteran reveals:

“It’s a sh*t office. Really, really woeful for a former Chancellor. Alan Duncan and David Davis for example have PCH offices with stairs inside. Two floors, really impressive. Osborne’s new one is absolutely woeful. Honestly, it’s sh*t.”

Osborne will now be next door to the photocopying room and has a view of the back of an office block rather than of Big Ben and the river. His new corridor includes such high-flyers as David Mowat and Anne Main. George might have been Foreign Secretary, instead he’s got the Foreign Secretary’s old office…

Quote of the Day

The FT’s Wolfgang Munchau on the “fake maths” of economic forecasts:

“The truth is that our ability to forecast the future beyond the current quarter is limited… The curse of our time is fake maths. Think of it as fake news for numerically literate intellectuals: it is the abuse of statistics and economic models to peddle one’s own political prejudice… The fakeness of the maths lies in an exaggerated inference. Economic models have their uses, as do opinion polls. They provide information to policymakers and markets. But nobody can see through the fog of the future.”
