    Default George Osborne - any good as Chancellor?

    Hmmm.
    Degree in history, only real jobs: data input clerk and a spell in Selfridges.

    You profess to having numerous degrees and yet have, on many occasions, proved yourself to be a complete economic simpleton. Maybe it's not all in the education

    Maybe we should let him do the job more than a week before making any decisions. After all, the majority thought Brown was doing a good job for quite a few years.

    His popularity will probably follow a battery discharge curve.

    Personally I think a degree in history is exactly what a Chancellor needs - as history provides the knowledge to avoid mistakes.
    On the other hand isn't Gordo a history PhD? And he didn't spot the signs of a classic bubble

    The current mob are less qualified to run the country than the last lot.

    Anyway, I don't give a frack.
    How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well certainly there are those more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable, but again truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror.

    He doesn't have to be popular - popular usually gets us in the tulip - he just has to make a better job of it than the previous two inept bastards!

    People who study history are doomed to make the same mistakes.
