George Osborne supposedly used to regularly snort cocaine with a sex worker. Andy Coulson's NotW was on hand to damp down the story, hacking the escort's phone, attacking her personally, and printing an editorial sympathetic to Osborne. Hypocritical Tory saved by friends in high places, what's new?

But what I love is how in the midst of all this, she still manages to put the boot into Hague:

At the time [Osborne] was working for William Hague. I remember that vividly because he called William Hague insipid and I didn't know what the word meant. I do now.


[FWIW I find Hague much less insipid than the average politician, and in fact the current cabinet show up just how insipid the New Labour minsters were. Osborne, by contrast, has no redeeming features I've yet been able to find]

If true, would the fact that he used to snort cocaine regularly with a sex worker not count as a redeeming feature?

good point. I might even be convinced, if only it had been mdma or lsd rather than cocaine :/
