George Osborne will not be blown off course by bad weather. God help us all.

Britain’s ‘recovery’ went into reverse today, a “stunning blow to the Government” according to the Evening Standard. Howard Archer of IHS Global Insight said: “This is a stunningly bad outcome”. Hetal Mehta of Daiwa Capital Markets Europe said: “This is an absolute disaster for the economy”.

George Osborne said: “There is no question of changing a fiscal plan that has established international credibility on the back of one very cold month. That would plunge Britain back into a financial crisis. We will not be blown off course by bad weather”.

Baldrick Osborne might well have said: “I have a cunning plan” or perhaps “Crisis? What crisis”.

  1. Oh, this is brilliant. You have to do this. We can call it “baldrick bingo” or something.

    Watch the video on the BBC news page:

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-12272717

    And take a drink whenever he uses one of the following phrases (or comments):

    “disappointing figures”

    “coldest/worst december for 100 years”

    mentions the ONS/the statisticians

    mentions manufacturing performing strongly/growing

    “blown off course by bad weather” (which is just a repeat of a cameron comment anyway)

    Does he even realise what a parroting imbecile he sounds like?

    Good grief.
