George Osborne, the Chancellor under the Cameron Government in the UK has been a lightning rod ever since he helped usher in austerity measures in the UK — which has undeniably caused a double-dip recession.
One might think that would be the thing that would have cost him his job months ago.
George Osborne, who was last week forced to pay a £160 rail upgrade after sitting in first class with only a standard ticket, had already been caught making the same “error” five months ago, it has emerged.
If this does end up leading to his resignation (and it may not) Osborne can always take solace that years ago John Sununu resigned from the Bush I Administration for similar — but even more frequent — offenses.
Twenty years later he’s one of Romney’s most offensive and prominent liars.
