It seems possible that David Cameron to try to form a government sometime soon. I’m not predicting that. I’m just saying it looks possible.
I am predicting just one thing post the election. That is that if David Cameron does try to form a government George Osborne will not be his Chancellor.
The City will like that.
The rest of country would be delighted.
Machiavelli would approve.
And it would be what Osborne deserves.
Remember, he’s run the Tory campaign — and however you look at it, they’ve lost. This election should have been a racing certainty for them. And if they forma government it’s not even clear it will be with a majority. Cameron will need to show his anger at that outcome.
And I, for one, will be delighted if he does.
