A favourite YouTube clip in the Scrapbook office is from Armando Ianucci’s Time Trumpet, in which a shallow David Cameron was filmed moving a charity wristband so it was clearly visible to the media — before quickly glancing to check that a camera crew would capture it.
But in his recent appearance on the Andrew Marr Show, George Osborne attempts to rival his neighbour for affectation. George looked distinctly unamused by Keane’s performance at the end of the programme. With another sly glance at the camera, however, he realises the nation is watching him and starts to bob his head.
He’ll be claiming he likes Arctic Monkeys next.
