The disasters are coming thick and fast for the Conservative Party.
Commenting on Labour’s announcement of policies intended to boost small and large businesses, Tory Party co-chairman Grant Shapps told BBC News that Ed Miliband could not run the economy because he’d never run a business in his life.
Commenter Roy Saunders suggested to the BBC News website: “Perhaps Mr Shapps could take a moment to tell the British public about all the business experience that George Osborne has?”
Yes indeed; towel-folding in a posh department store must have set him up well for a career as Chancellor of the Exchequer.
Mind you, Shapps can’t talk. He does have actual business experience – but not under his own name.
