Daily Mail Accuses Osborne Of Being A Smeghead.
The Daily Mail, know for decades as little more than a mouthpiece for the Tories and other fringe organisations dedicated to extolling the virtues of the knee-jerk reaction, have today called on David Cameron to get rid of George Osborne. Pointing out that the Chancellor of the Exchequer should do more than simply wander about with a glazed expression on his face, they have called on him to do something - anything - about the parlous state of Britain's economy. As the Daily Mail states; "In the financial year drawing to a close, the United Kingdom spent £705 billion, but raised only £575 billion," which now means that we now have a national debt that amounts to a staggering £1 trillion - and that after 21 months of "austerity." Nor are they shy about pointing out why Britain is in this state; "The urgent priority must be to promote growth. This should be apparent even to those, like Messrs Cameron and Osborne, who live off family trust funds." Having effectively publicised Ed Ball's analysis of Britain's accelerating economic decline, what's next - a Daily Mail campaign to get Labour reelected? We live in strange times.
