- Osborne team say he didn’t see disabled bay but …
- Massive disabled bays clearly wider than the others
- Osborne bay marked in yellow — all others in white
- Just four disabled spaces in park for 234 vehicles
With the Daily Mirror publishing photos of George Osborne using a disabled parking space, evidence gathered by Political Scrapbook brings into doubt his excuse that he was ‘unaware’ where his vehicle was parked.
Car carrying UK chancellor pictured parking in disabled bay at service station – Treasury source says George Osborne did not realise

The disabled bays in which Osborne’s car was photographed at Magor motorway service station are clearly larger than the other spaces in the car park, accommodating the Land Rover with room to spare. The disabled bays — which occupy the area used by six normal spaces — are also distinguished by yellow markings and three lines between each bay.
Perhaps more damning, however, is the fact Osborne was driven past 230 normal car parking spaces to use the disabled ones right next to the entrance.
He took their benefits … now he’s coming for the parking spaces.
