Like Ed his awkwardness is not going to go away
Shortly after Ed Miliband was elected LAB leader in September 2010 some bright spark set up a website devoted to pictures of the opposition leader looking awkward.
In its way this hit the nail on the head and was the forerunner of the famous Ed bacon sandwich picture that featured so much during GE2015.
Guido has been making the point that George Osborne is, in many ways, very similar. He can appear awkward in many public situations and, like with EdM, this could hamper him if he was leader in a general election.
He’s still favourite across the board to replace Cameron. I got out on the afternoon of his autumn statement.
