Sure, sure, Barack Obama claims he got George Osborne confused with the soul singer Jeffrey Osborne. Because, you know, they look so similar and all that, and George is known for his ineffable cool and his smooth, smooth voice.
But a few people have suggested that actually there is a closer parallel with Joffrey Baratheon, the psychopathic child-king from Game of Thrones. (Ed West, formerly of this parish, pointed out the similarity way back in April, no less.)
No one, by the way, is suggesting that Mr Osborne is the product of twincest.
