Comrade Osborne? Hardly.

So George Osborne doesn't believe in "market fundamentalism" and has no time for the "capitalist casino" economy, and thinks fat cats should bear the blame, etc. This is a bit Alice in Wonderland isn't it? Haven't the Tories been pushing privatisation and deregulation since the mid-1970's and wasn't that the gospel of their suburban heroine? He has a point, it has to be said, when he argues that Gordon has been "running the casino" for the last ten years, but are we meant to believe the Tories would have done it differently? The whole political class is to blame for this; they all bought in to "market fundamentalism".
