Economy News: Chancellor George Osbourne has insisted that he’s just ‘popping out’ for a pint of milk and will be ‘right back’.

Osbourne denies that he’s not doing a runner in the face of criticism that his policies have plunged the UK back into a double-dip recession, and that instead he’s just simply run out of milk.

“I always like to take my passport and a small suitcase with me when I nip to the shops in the middle of the night,” said Osborne. “The suitcase is perfect for carrying milk and the passport is just in case I need to prove my age to the shopkeeper.”

The chancellor remains upbeat about the recovery, despite Britain’s economy sinking into the longest depression for 100 years. “I’m sure the economy will improve very soon,” said Osborne.

“Do you want anything from the shop while I’m out? I could make a list on the back of this one-way ticket to the Canary Islands I happen to have in my pocket.”

    Howdy! I know this is sort of off-topic but I needed to ask.
    Does operating a well-established blog such as yours take a
    large amount of work? I am brand new to writing a blog however I do write in my
    diary everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my own experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!
