The Boy "Done" Good!
I was out all evening and on an hour long drive home around ten I listened to the radio 4 and 5 analysis of the debate. The effort to dismiss the event as not that interesting was enormous and I felt pleased George Osborne appeared to have survived the glare and pressure of Slappy Cable and Scotty Darling. It was palpably obvious the BBC were quite disappointed not to have a piece of Conservative scalp to chew voraciously. Then a quick surf, when I got home, showed a similar casual attitude in "blogarak land" so I went to bed buoyed by better polls for Conservatives, of late and slightly disappointed that a Radio5 girl had felt the occasion was not worthy of missing "Corrie".
Well Mrs. OldRightie had recorded this programme and I watched a great deal over a cup of tea this morning. Amazing. I was captivated by George Osborne's quiet defense of his position, appalled at Darling's nervous sweaty lip and Cable's very superior arrogance. A quality shown by our Saint with his claims of having had a job interview with The Treasury. If ever a celebrity was carried away with his own manufactured persona, Vince is the man!
Back to the programme. I found it enthralling and engaging. Post the initial flat spin it transpired our Scotty had made a commitment not to proceed with that dreadful, grave robber tax burden! He panicked and did the classic gear change miss with the brain box. So all over the media today is a very nice little own goal from a nifty cross from the wing by George. Labour attack him as "boy". People did the same with another George. George Best. A player of such skill and talent he ran rings round any opposition, young and old. Most of all he embarrassed some of the most experienced but failed players on the pitch! He's the man!!
