OK let's have a go at this. The Chancellor asked us to elect him because he was the only person able to reduce our nation's deficit. The Brown/Darling plan, rejected by the people, asked that we do it more slowly in order not to damage economic growth.
The Osborne plan left us economically damaged with recession and unemployment the cost. We have now turned the corner and the economic damage caused by the Osborne plan has begun to end (note, not ended).
But we have made no progress on our deficit. At all. And he asks us to be pleased. Rain-check.
