Dear Gideon......

You are a twat.

There, I said it, I can't be more blunt really. Look, the idea and principle of saying higher rate tax earners shouldn't really be getting a £20-or-so a week handout in child benefit is a good thing, but please, if you're going to do it at least execute the change with some sort of skill.

What you don't do is go on the telly and say that a couple earning £43,000 each, making their household earning £86,000 will still get the benefit, whilst a couple with only one working on £44,001 won't.

Would you like me to get a bandage for your foot seeing as the bullet wound appears to be weeping a tad?

Did I mention that George Osborne is a twat?
