Personally, This Writer sees a much closer resemblance between Mao and Osborne. Both represent parties whose policies either killed or ruined the lives of millions of people.

It seems unlikely that Paul Mason is ever going to achieve that kind of kill-rate.

No one has obliterated Osborne like Paul Mason just did.

Paul Mason has only just left Channel Four News, but he is already going head to head with Chancellor George Osborne. On Tuesday, Osborne dropped a go-to Tory smear, upon hearing Mason would contribute to Labour’s The New Economics series:

that revolutionary Marxist broadcaster Paul Mason

Instead of answering Treasury questions at the House of Commons, Osborne also quipped that Labour chose him as an informal adviser, because:

Chairman Mao was dead and Mickey Mouse was busy.

Enter Paul Mason, serving up some cold hard truths for Osborne:

As for the Mao/Mickey Mouse jibe, I was tailed for hours in 2008 in Beijing by the secret police of Mr Osborne’s favourite Marxist government, after interviewing the victims of Mao’s Great Leap Forward. I am happy to state that Mao was a despot whose policies killed millions; I look forward to hearing Mr Osborne say that on his next trip to China.
