Pictures of George Osborne in hi-vis jackets: a history

Posted by in people

Early December under the coalition government only means one thing: another financial statement to the Commons - and another opportunity to look at pictures of George Osborne in a hi-vis jacket.

And there are quite a few to choose from. In terms of timings, note the Autumn Statement is typically in December and the Budget is in March.
