Klösters catastrophe as Osborne loses luggage

Spare a thought for poor George Osborne. The chancellor has had a tumultuous year. A great office of state before the age of forty. Master of all he surveys. Slashing and burning for Britain. Curbing the excesses of the poor.

A crafty winter holiday was the least he deserved. Klösters, the world’s most exclusive ski resort, the only destination equal to his sybaritic grandeur.

But at the airport this week he was reduced – like the most impotent child – to tears of frustration at the loss of his luggage. Reports reach that he shouted and stamped, cursed and cajoled, but nothing could call into being the exquisitely riveted corners of his monogrammed portmanteaux.

The chancellor is not thought to be staying at the Klösters home of his millionaire associate, scion of the famous banking dynasty, Nat Rothschild.

He is thought, sadly, to be still looking for his luggage. Airline executives are counting the cost as we speak.

    You pathetic Berks if someone wants to go skiing they can try keeping your ludicrously large statist nose out of other people’s affairs.

    Pity Gidion hasn’t taken his millionaire front bench colleagues with him. Maybe they could get lost?

    It’s a shame that some seem to so infantile as to gloat at others misfortunes. This was a private family event, it’s sad that some wish to intrude on such an event. A touch of the ‘Princess Diana’ syndrome.
