Osborne’s ‘Brexit won a majority. Hard Brexit did not’ is a brilliant piece of rhetoric but then I supported Remain.
I never rated Osborne as Chancellor and disliked his style in government. But I think that I might grow to like the new humbler Osborne, especially if he champions the political central ground.
Personally, I agree with Osborne’s viewpoint on Brexit. So far, the right of the Conservative Party has been pressing the PM for Hard Brexit, if Osborne champions ‘Soft Brexit’, he will show that he’s still a formidable and dangerous politician with some very powerful friends.
