(It’s not satire – it’s George Osborne!)

I’m a little bit of a polling geek. I love opinion polls, and not just political ones.

So I’ve just noticed that in a survey this week a mere 15% of UK people think George Osborne is doing a good job as chancellor.

Which coincidentally, is exactly the same % of us who believe in fortune telling.

Interestingly, around the same % of UK citizens believe the US government and not Al Qaeda was responsible for the 9/11 attacks.

And even more interestingly, slightly more people (17%) believe in the existence of the Loch Ness Monster.

Which means more of us believe dinosaurs are still residing in a Scottish lake than in George Osborne’s ability to run our economy.
