via George Osborne Should Go As Chancellor, Say Nearly Half Of Britain’s Voters.

This blog supports the view that it would probably be better for George Osborne to go. Yesterday, we picked up Lord Lawson’s view. Regular criticism in the media includes:

  • He is not an economist
  • He is from a privileged background and consequently unable to relate to ordinary people
  • He has not had any real work or professional experience before becoming an MP
  • Plan A has failed, especially attempts to grow the economy
  • He is inflexible
  • Reform of the Public Sector has been watered down, and is largely impacting front line services
  • He is too close to Prime Minister David Cameron
  • He is a part-time Chancellor, giving a significant part of his time to Tory strategy

What do you think?
