George Osborne today announced his spending review with this rather lovely tweet...
Sounds promising. Nice folders. Creepy claw thumb.
Ok, the pen does look a but cheap.
Turns out the British public weren't going to let the announcement pass that easily.
Here's a flavour of the responses. Fergus was truly disappointed.

Some doubted his conviction.

There were some legitimate questions.

And it didn't get much better after that.
@George_Osborne can't wait to see the ingenious ways you're going to screw the country again.— Dave Scally (@scallmcfc) November 25, 2015
@George_Osborne security for who? The ill and disabled whose lives you are destroying with cuts to frontline services?— Amy (@amylora) November 25, 2015
@George_Osborne surely "destroy the very fabric of our society?"— tanglefoot tony (@tanglefoot_tony) November 25, 2015
@George_Osborne you really are hell bent on destroying this country, why do you hate it so?— Roy Swales (@SwalesRoy) November 25, 2015
But at least one person wished him well.
@George_Osborne and ruin people's careers in the process. Merry Christmas to you to Osborne.— trev patts (@trevpatts) November 25, 2015
