Fraser Nelson: this credit easing is something Gordon Brown could have come up with.

Is he unaware that they did it, in 2009, and Osborne called it "desperate"?

Doesn't the evidence suggest it's a Treasury thing. Maybe the very same civil servant who wrote it served it up to Osborne again, with the dates changed. He was right to suppose that Osborne would have forgotten about what he'd said two years ago.

Did they not see him the day after the worst rioting, where shopkeepers (probably fairly Tory) tore him a new one?
He wins elections. That's all they care about.

No point. He knew that what Boris was asserting was completely fatuous. He might have taken serious umbrage 10 years ago (pace Brian Redhead), but not now.

I think the riots damaged his reputation, we will see next May I guess, I don't think Labour are running the right candidate mind.

I agree. Livingstone messed up with his emphasis on the forthcoming cuts. Sure they added to the sense of futility and despair, but the focus should have been on Johnson's own cuts over the whole term. As it is Johnson, will do a bit of "I'm different from Cameron", and "I'll fight for London", and he'll be off the hook.

Livingstone's also freezing council tax. He will be able to do fuck all.

Dunno. They've got Noel fucking Gallagher on now. Really high quality political analysis from the man who has just admitted to voting for the Pirate party at the last election.
