Someone on Twitter compared George Osborne with Austin Powers – a relic from a bygone era who gets his kicks by ****ing everything he can. Fair comment?

Bombing Isis in Syria has given Britain its mojo back, George Osborne has said.

Speaking to a thinktank in New York during a visit to the US, the chancellor said it was a “source of real pride” that the UK had joined nations launching air strikes against the terror group in Syria.

He told the Council on Foreign Relations: “Britain has got its mojo back and we are going to be with you as we reassert Western values, confident that our best days lie ahead.”
