George Osborne - My Fake Diary
Saturday, 19 May 2012
What a headline from the Guardian: Pasties, grannies - and now caravan tax adds to Budget blunders!
Not for many years has a budget courted the kind of controversy and debate that George Osborne's triggered! Budgets are supposed to be events that come, endure a couple of days of debate, then go. Not so this time. The fact that, all these weeks on, journalists and MPs alike are still grumbling about Osborne's measures is a sign of just how badly both their content and presentation were handled.
If David Cameron finds himself as a one-term Prime Minister, many will look back to 21 March 2012 as the day when the seeds of his, and his government's, demise were planted.
