This is an important, MUST READ article by Will Hutton, published in the Guardian. Check it out!
I find myself in a very strange position with regard to both Will Hutton’s view and George Osborne.
Firstly, I tend to disagree with much of Will Hutton’s argument, yet broadly support his conclusions. For me, Hutton is very light on remedial actions.
Secondly, regular readers of this blog will know that I am not a great fan of George Osborne but do believe that he was broadly right on his visit to China, having to recover enormous ground from David Cameron‘s foreign policy blunders. My fundamental problem with George Osborne is that he puts political dogma first and evidenced based policy second.
