I personally wouldn't trust George Osborne with the contents of my daughter's piggy bank - especially as she's absolutely loaded as she's fantastic about getting her pocket money and not spending it, getting Mummy and Daddy to fork out for the essentials of a 9 year old's life. As Tory Shadow Chancellor he has been shallow, opportunistic and brings nothing to the debate. He is the flat coca-cola to the vintage claret that is Vince Cable.
The Tories are trying to pretend that they are just like us and they understand what life is like for ordinary people - hence Cameron's bucket and spade break for the media. However, his shadow chancellor is in the Med hanging around with squillionaires.
I don't think we'll ever find out what really went on there - it's all he said/she said kind of stuff, but the whole affair does not make me think well of either Osborne or Peter Mandelson.
