So says Sky News’s faithful Labour groupie Adam Boulton
Quick refresher so we can position ourselves for the slant on the reporting. Adam Boulton married Tony Blair’s former aid Anji Hunter and a large number of guests at the wedding were Labour party power players.
Having seen the actual video on Sky yesterday where Osborne was very professional, eloquent and straight to the point the following from Boulton shows where he and several others at Sky News stand:
After a brilliant few days which led to his lionisation in the Tory press Mr Osborne, not for the first time, over-reached himself, producing secret documents which were neither secret nor evidence of the breathless charges he levelled against Labour.
Depends how you define secret, buried in the small print which no one reads in one way, the other way is to hide in the open.
No one else had picked up on this, so one mighty hat tip to George Osborne for bringing this to light. Osborne is proving consistenlty that he is no political lightweight.

Will she see the day out?…Who knows!
You can tell just how desparate Labour and it’s attack dogs are as they launch the next phase of Smeargate, in their sights again is conservative MEP Daniel Hannan.
“The deadly attack gerbils of the liberal-left have had a go at Dan Hannan.
The Daily Mirror, NuLav’s comically useless online propaganda outlet Labour List, and a sweet-looking boy named James Mcintyre who writes for the New Statesman, have all seized excitedly on some thoughtful, unexceptionable remarks Dan made about Obama’s “exotic” background.” writes James Dellingpole in The Telegraph
Here is what Daniel Hannan said is his blog about Obama and his “exotic” background
The could be trouble ahead for James Mcintyre, the New Statesman briefly removed his original blog post, which then reappeared with some sort of a disclaimer writes Damian Thompson in The Telegraph
Apparently Mr Hannan is following the lead set by Conservative MP Nadine Dorries and seeing his lawyers on Monday.
Nadine you may recall recently served Court Papers on McBride (via Guido LOL), Draper and 10 Downing Street, here’s to personal accountability, and some crippling personal damages settlements.
£6017 is the amount per second the Labour government borrowed in August 2009.
Government borrowing for the whole of August was £16 billion; that used to be the PSBR for a whole year.
That is some achievement to increase borrowing by 1200%, and there is no sign of the spending stopping yet.
Total government borrowing now exceeds £800 billion and for the first time in our history our indebtedness has reached 57.5% of national output.
At this point it is worth bearing in mind that the man hailed as the greatest Chancellor of the Exchequer since bread was first sliced, stated that it should not exceed 40% of national output

10% Tory cuts, Labour investment.
How many times have we heard this, along with other great mistruths like “British Jobs For British Workers”.
On July 2nd, Gordon Brown told the House of Commons: “I have always told the truth and I’ve always told people as it is…we don’t want to have the 10 per cent cuts the Conservatives are talking about.”
The Tories’ extremely destructive Treasury mole has leaked documents proving that Labour has been planning substantial cuts in front line services since before the budget.

To put no finer point on it, Gordon Brown lied.
Could this be the reason that the spending review has been delayed, Paul Waugh in the Evening Standard thinks so.
