The Chancellor-off


Well, Alistair Darling was a bit more passionate than expected, which was good.

Gideon Osborne was less sneery than expected, which was good for him.

And Vince Cable kept the audience happy, which I’m sure the Lib Dems are very pleased with.

Darling definitely seemed the least articulate of the three. I was also annoyed with his continuing conservatism. But he laid some good punches on the Tories.

Osborne had well-rehearsed populist lines up his sleeve, yet I don’t think he came across as Chancellor material.

The Channel 4 website has the following opinion poll result:

 Who is the best choice for Chancellor?
36% Vince Cable – 32% Alistair Darling – 32% George Osborne
