Yes, well. My column for The Independent on Sunday says George Osborne is not very good but the opposition is nowhere. You knew that. What you might not know is that there are people in the Labour Party trying to put together a fiscally conservative, pro-business programme that could win.

    Well done JR but it’s interesting to note that you might have come out even higher if the two BBC journalists, Robinson and Paxman (who are not supposed to have views of their own under the BBC impartiality rules), had not been included. I reckon you should insist that that they are not eligible candidates and demand a recount.
