Here are some of your comments...
* Not a natural Tory and never seen Osborne making a speech before but he was outstanding. The sort of demolition job one expects from oppositions.
* If Darling didn't have the cojones to stand and declare the alcohol rise it says a great deal about his character. None of it good.
* Excellent is not a sufficient word to describe Osbourne's speech. It was an absolute earthquake, probably on a par with Cameron's 2007 Conference address.
* It's time to start a very serious debate about rebalancing the British economy for the long term. Out of every crisis are a series of opportunities...
