Having just published an article saying Tory Louise Mensch’s head buttons up the back, here’s George Osborne, a man who doesn’t known when to keep his own mouth buttoned up.
In the words of Blackadder: Oh look! There goes Thick George. He’s got a brain the size of a weasel’s wedding tackle.
George Osborne claims his own experts are wrong about benefit tourism and it IS a problem – despite the Tories producing no proof it exists.
The Chancellor insisted people “abuse free movement just to come to our country and claim our benefits” in the face of doubts by the Office of Budget Responsibility he set up.
Mr Osborne was defiant last night over the Tories’ plan for a four-year ban on migrants’ in-work benefits, which is a key part of David Cameron ‘s EU renegotiation.
Reports have claimed Germany may accept some aspects of the plans – but only if hundreds of thousands of Brits lose their benefits too.
