Gideon’s Liable

Chancellors undergo numerous trials: George Osborne must know this only too well as he looks back upon his latest budget. To have witnessed him once more shaking and sweating as he went through the ins and outs of his fiscal plan, still fumbling uncertainly despite his now greater depth of experience, one could almost forget that this was the same man who had imposed such cruel cuts and restraints upon our whimpering economy.

Having oiled and massaged figures, leaving us quivering in anticipation of held-back spends, he ended with the climactic blessing of relief on intoxication. And yet, somehow, I can’t help but feel that it was us who were getting shafted…

Take heed, Mr Chancellor, the message in your own initials… GO!

About Fles

Early middle-aged (oh yes I am!), no longer long-haired but still speccy and decidedly still an increasingly opinionated git. I’m basically a believer in individualism, that everybody has their own perspective and inner-beauty. I try to find humour in every situation. I enjoy reading and writing poetry.
