George Osborne "has done nothing wrong"- or so the leadership of the Conservatives is trying to tell us. How then, to explain the news that Mr. Osborne will no longer be taking an active role in fund raising for the Conservative party.
If he is not a fit an proper person to be concerned in the finances of his own party, how then, can he continue to pretend that he would be a credible Chancellor of the Exchequer?
I mean, it is not as if Mr. Osborne's entire brief is to look at finance and regulate financial probity or anything.
The man is holed well below the waterline- David Cameron might have left him with a bottle of whisky and a pistol, but he seems to be too caddish to take the hint.
It would now just be a kindness to put him out of our misery and remove him- Osborne is simply a laughing stock.
