Why does George Osborne insist on lying? Is he misled, devious or just stupid. We would hope it's not the latter. Mind you, I don't want it to be one of the other choices either.
He keeps insisting that that the deficit is a decade old debt. We know he is wrong. It's less than 2 years old and is because of the bank bailout. That's a fact.
He has told us that benefit fraud costs us £5 billion a year. We know he is wrong there too. It costs £1 billion. That's still a lot of money but is a considerable difference from the amount he is stating. And it's also a fact.
So why does he keep spouting this at us? Is he hoping that people will just swallow it and cheer him on? It's sad that there are people who are doing just that.
The rest of us know better. But he isn't answering our question. So we need to keep asking it
Mr Osborne, why do you keep lying to us?
