Austerity Policies Attacked By Former Bank Of England Economists.
David Blanchflower: The chancellor’s austerity measures have “completely failed”, says the professor of economics at Dartmouth College in the United States. Osborne, he adds, is the “most inept chancellor in 100 years. We have the worst economic recovery since the late 19th century.”
|Chancellor George Osborne|
‘MOST INEPT CHANCELLOR IN 100 YEARS’. When you consider how many "inept" people have had that job since 1913, that's quite an achievement for Osborne. The worrying point is that being Chancellor of the Exchequer, is considered as a stepping stone to becoming Prime Minister ! Now there is a thought. Osborne could eventually hold both titles. Most inept Chancellor and most inept Prime Minister in 100 years.
