George Osborne: Horseman of the Apocalypse or Don Quixote?
You cannot help wondering just what happened to the Chancellor’s long-term plan. Osborne seems to have got rather carried away in his bid to stop a Brexit.
Osborne’s rhetoric romances that Britain is completely dependent on the EU, economically as well as politically. Yet, the underlying numbers the Chancellor uses to back up his points are plain wrong – the EU economy is arguably dependent on Britain.
With all the tales of post-Brexit woe, it is a wonder too that Mr Osborne has not yet scared off the very partners he wants to whom he needs to stay close.Whatever the outcome – even though I hope it is Remain – restoring unity to the country and to the Conservative party will be vital after the referendum.
