Osborne has become a drug on the nation and the economy and his singular incompetence in formulating Conservative election policy has left that party bereft of ideology, haemorraging voters to UKIP and with a deeply split parliamentary party. He is no better than Gordon Brown, and must go. He has no redeeming virtues or talent; his economic incompetence is equal to his policy maladroitness. Like Brown, he is also utterly incapable of connecting with voters on a personal basis; Brown's rictus faked grin and Osborne's twisted fake smiley face are as transparent as glass to the public. He carries a look of furtive guilt with him as though discovered by an aunt in adolescent practices, has all the gravitas of Helium in the chamber, speaks with the sincerity of Bernie Madoff and displays all the intellectual calibre of a modern Malvolio. This silly little rich boy would be better placed selling the family firm's overpriced wallpaper to the dowagers of Chelsea than running the Treasury of this United Kingdom.
