I don't know about you but George Osborne has always been a bit of a worry for me. The way he sits next to David Cameron at PMQs with his mouth open and head on one side makes him look like the slightly "challenged" friend we used to have to take the pub at the request of his mum and dad. (That is probably so politically incorrect that I will find Harriet Harman has twittered me even before I have finished this post!)
However, THIS piece in The Independent has given me some cause for reassurance. In fact, in the survey they report that 67% of respondents think Osborne would make a better Chancellor than Alistair Darling. And 67% 0f business leaders think Osborne understands business while only 27% say the same about Darling.
Combine all this with the fact that Michael White of The Guardian actually says he likes Osborne then I have had to reassess my view. I am expecting great things from him when he is our next Chancellor. But I just wish he would smile benignly like Darling!

If this report in the Daily Telegraph is true then it tells you all you need to know about New (and Old) Labour.
I can't believe that Brown would allow his wife to be used as an attack dog on the Conservatives. After all, she is not a prop, is she?

Not often that I use a quote from the Bible to title a post but could not resist linking to this from Iain Dale.
"Take a second look at Labour"? - yep, OK done that. Still a pile of vomit. Next
"A future fair for all"? What, like bumper cars, coconut shies, helter-skelters? No? Oh, you mean a fete worse than death. (Yeah, I know that appeared minutes after the "new" slogan was announced but it's too witty to be lost on Twitter.)
