Getting booed at the Paralympics must be the highlight of George Osborne’s murky career:
Nye Bevan had it right:
“That is why no amount of cajolery, and no attempts at ethical or social seduction, can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred for the Tory Party that inflicted those bitter experiences on me. So far as I am concerned they are lower than vermin. They condemned millions of first-class people to semi-starvation. Now the Tories are pouring out money in propaganda of all sorts and are hoping by this organised sustained mass suggestion to eradicate from our minds all memory of what we went through. But, I warn you young men and women, do not listen to what they are saying now. “
Update 1: Huff Post contrasts Gordon Brown’s reception with that of Osborne’s.
Update 2: Even Cameron was jeered.
Update 3: Very little mainstream media coverage, but Sky News has it.
