Was it Disraeli who called the Tories the "stupid party"? Ben Brogan thinks that some Tories are desperate to live up to their reputation by handing Gordon Brown George Osborne's head on a platter. Madness.
Over the last few weeks I have noticed a lot of anonymous comments on this blog from anonymous so-called Tories expressing unhappiness with George Osborne. Not a single one of them put a name to their comments. It's quite clear that there is a concerted campaign, not just on the blogosphere, by Labour sympathisers (I shall put it no more strongly than that) to destabilise the relationship between David Cameron and George Osborne. Brown knows how close they are and also knows what effect it would have if he could somehow split them up. Let me give him and his lackeys a message...
It. Ain't. Gonna. Happen.
George Osborne is David Cameron's right hand (stop the sniggering at the back). Whatever mutterings gossipy journalists might or might not have heard, it is simply pie in the sky to even contemplate David Cameron moving Osborne to another post. He has a brilliant political brain and as Brogan says, will bounce back from his recent difficulties. If any Tory MPs are getting back into their bad habits - as Paul Waugh hints at - and briefing against their own, they need their heads read.
