There are some good points in this article by Mary Riddle in the Telegraph, although I find her style on balance, irritating, rambling, disjointed and confused.

George Osborne’s playing Scrooge, but Ed Balls still hasn’t picked his part – Telegraph.

I agree with the conclusion, that George Osborne is likely to turn the focus to Ed Balls and Ed Millband.

Personally, I have always felt that Harvard educated Balls has been right to argue in favor of demand-side intervention. Sadly, Ed Milliband is probably as weak as David Cameron on economic leadership.

For me, none of the UK political parties currently have effective leadership, with clear vision and properly costed and risk assessed plans. I continue to believe that the next election will see unprecedented negative campaigning – after all it seemed to work for Barrack Obama!

Any thoughts?

For me, the article confirms my view that George Osborne has been out of his depth, without vision, strategy or effective execution. Osborne has made a lot of noise as a politician but measured by results surely, he is one of the UK’s worst Chancellors on record?
