- Balls or Osborne
Armpit actually (with apologies to Not the Nine O’clock News)
One is a historian with a dodgy grasp of economics
One is an economist with a dodgy grasp of economics
One trained as a Keynesian economist and professes to be a Keynesian but failed to follow basic K policies when in power
One was correct to use term flatlining
One talked about Plan A but implemented a Plan B in reality
Both were wrong on core assumptions about the UK economy
Both are weak orators
Both are struggling with the hairstyles
Both react to rather than lead economic developments, have broadly similar policies are are constrained by the same global issues
Both are better than Uncle Vice or Danny Alexander
On balance, Osborne (just and only just) for the simple reason that Balls (given his training) should have known better. Easier to forgive a history grad!!!
Rather have dinner with Balls though to understand why he lived up to his name in power. He would be more interesting.Posted 4 years ago
It still brings a tear of pride to my eye when I see that this great, inclusive nation of ours can unite around one thing. George Osbourne.
