'War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength' claims Osborne

“A successful Euro is massively in Britain’s interests” Chancellor George Osborne said today.

He could equally well have said: “A cute puppy and/or crazy calendar kitten-in-a-basket for every working family is massively in Britain’s interests”.
