The Tories are in a right old mess. Shadow Chancellor George Gideon Oliver Osborne - a leading light in the ‘Notting Hill set - is accused of shady dealings on the fancy yacht owned by Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska.
Tory leader David Cameron is under severe pressure to sack Osborne. The TV cameras caught up with Cameron last night as he arrived home. He was breathless. Stressed out with the fallout from Yachtgate? Nope, he was on his bike. What a great way for a high-powered politician to forget about life’s daily pressures: cycling to and from work.
Cameron is every inch the London bike commuter: he even has a fluoro yellow Altura jacket, the wet weather garment chosen by so many Brit cyclists it’s beyond ubiquitous.
