George Osborne

George Osborne is not really liked by the public and it’s unlikely he would be the next Tory leader says the former editor of Conservative Home in an article today for CapX.

Tim Montgomerie goes on to say that it’s likely Osborne won’t even run as leader, adding:

“don’t be surprised if Mr Osborne chooses to become the campaign manager for someone else rather than run himself.”

But even more cutting were the Chancellor’s own allies.

Yesterday on the Andrew Marr show, protege Sajid Javid admitted the Google tax deal was “not a glorious moment”, directly contradicting his former boss.

But the worst criticism came late last week.

One senior minister, described as a former ally of Osborne, told the Sun:

“It’s like Ed Miliband and the ‘weird’ thing – people look at him and they don’t like him, they’re not even sure why.

“There are also question marks as to whether he’d be any good. It’s like the Tony Blair/Gordon Brown thing.

Ouch.

That’s a big fall in grace for someone who topped the ConHome leadership poll just a few months ago.

  1. People don’t like him? I fuckin’ despise him, he’s an asset stripping thief, the most incompetent chancellor in history and an out and out liar.

  2. Osborne’s next Budget should be interesting. He needs to crack down on Tax Dodging by Companies using his Business Friendly Tax Laws. He also needs to Tax those on higher pay to cut the deficit.

  3. he’s another latent psychopath, another private members elitist scum. i wouldn’t trust him with a box of matches

  4. He was rejected from house slytherin for being too slimey FFS and the guy is in charge of our economy. He shouldn’t be in charge of getting himself dressed in the morning.. oh, I forgot, he’s not, he pays someone 90k a year to do that…

  5. There’s a comedian who attended St. Paul’s with George Osbourne. When asked about him, he said “He was a weird kid with no friends’.

  6. Robert Malcolm Kay says:

    I don’t think anyone who has ever seen a picture of him with that Madame can put it out of their minds. We can just about tolerate him as a Cameron sidekick, a bit like we put up with Dr Frankenstein’s Igor, but only as the comedy double-act second banana.

  7. iT JUST SHOWS HOW WEIRD HE IS, WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD STAND ON STAGE ,LEGS A KIMBO,THINKING IT LOOKS LIKE YOUR REALLY CONFIDENT??? LOL OH YEAH! “SILLY ME” THERESA MAY .
