Tory government regularly lied to the BBC, George Osborne admits

The last laugh: David Cameron and George Osborne failed the UK bitterly – but succeeded in hoodwinking the BBC.


There I was, virtually self-flagellating by surveying the post ‘Brexit-Day’ fall-out on Twitter, engaging in a bit myself, when I was fortunate to come across a tweet from our former Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne.

I very nearly choked on my cup of tea.

“Trying to convince you various fiascos were triumphs”. Yes. He really did use those words.

“Happy memories”? Well Mr Osborne, your “happy memories” acting as an Agent Provocateur, openly attempting to deceive those who would keep the British public informed, are actually pretty distasteful to some of us. Certainly to those who still perceive honesty and transparency as a good thing, and/or the most important qualities we want to see in a politician.

But perhaps it’s this exact flippancy about dishonesty, as so marvellously demonstrated by the man who once controlled Britain’s finances, that’s enabled this age of ‘moral bankruptcy’ and zero accountability we’re currently facing. Down the barrel of an economic shotgun.

Politicians of his ilk are literally laughing in our faces.

    By half way through Cameron’s first government it was clear to me that the only thing that matters to current Tories is to be in power. Lies, fraud, hypocrisy and corruption are all totally justifiable if they get Tories into power. Devastating most of the people and the K (formerly known as the UK) is all that matters to them.

    Cameron and Osborne lying? Knock me down with a feather. The BBC was lapping up their propaganda with gusto and presenting it to a gullible public as fact. The BBC hierarchy needs to review the terms of Kuenssburgs’ and Robinson’s contracts together with those of the rest of the Tory apparatchiks who infest the BBC’s News Unit.

    Vote with your feet – ditch the TV Licence (I did), plenty of content on catch-up: ITV Hub, 4oD, Netflix, YouTube etc. Incidentally, although live, a TV Licence isn’t needed to watch

    It makes you wonder about the standard of journalism in the BBC, if he could so easily fool them, did they just take what he took at face value, and not actually investigate further? The editorial side of the BBC has long appeared to push its own agenda rather than doing the job of information dissemination.

    Now, this odious man has the editorship of The £ondon Evening Standard! The truth is dead.
