Did George Osborne mislead Parliament?

Did George Osborne mislead Parliament?

Today's Independent suggested George Osborne got his figures wrong regarding the cut in higher rates. What do members think? Were his figures wrong? Should he have known better? Has he misled Parliament?

I must say ...

... that government spin, misinformation, corruption, and plain dishonesty becomes more apparent with every successive government.

Are they taking the lead from Brussels, or have Brussels taken the lead from our politicians?

Medical terms are never funny

Nor is reading about how George Osbourne can make things up to make himself seem great and have it accepted as a reasonable thing to do.

I do believe the mentioned area of the anatomy has the prize for probably the largest number of entries in the esteemed viz dictionary. I prefer the "taint" as in it 'aint one thing or the other. 

As for GO, pathetic as always.

He was just selective with the numbers he quoted

...which is what all politicians do, surely

Selective?

It's misleading, and he was claiming a triumph that didn't really exist.

Unfortunately, this sort of spin has become acceptable behaviour for politicians.

I think we can safely assume

that every victory claimed by Mr Osbourne will in fact turn out to have been a defeat all along.

He claimed a massive victory for getting a 50% 'discount' from the £1.7bn that the EU demanded to be paid at very short notice. :)

Did he mislead Parliament?

Is he a politician? Did his mouth move?

GO & mislead!
And when found out, he will probably "over firmly deny" that he ever referred to the figures!

There are 3 types of chancellors, those that can count and those that can't.

Death of spin

And I imagined this sort of spin went out when G Brown was no longer Chancellor.
