George Osborne is being obliterated on Twitter for his classless comments on local elections (TWEETS)

After a week in which he has been pilloried across social media, one might expect George Osborne to steer clear of Twitter for a while. Instead, he issued a series of bizarre tweets on Friday morning which gave Twitter users ample fuel to roast the Chancellor once again.

Seemingly in reaction to Tory gains against the SNP in Scotland, Mr Osborne issued this nonsensical and classless tweet. He followed it up with a rash of others, none of which seemed to particularly impress anyone.

Promptly thereafter, all hell broke loose.

It seems no one was in the mood to see divisive and boastful tweets from the Chancellor, especially given results since have somewhat taken the shine off Tory HQ.

Others pointed out that the Conservative party is being investigated by the police for how it propped itself up in the 2015 general election.

But the majority of tweets laid into the Chancellor for his string of ‘spaced out’ public appearances recently, and their suspicions about what might be behind them.

And one Twitter user seemed to sum up the public moody quite perfectly, with this little number.
