Is George Osborne up to the job?

As we await confirmation next week from George Osborne regarding proposed cost savings from the UK public sector of £6 billion this is certainly the first real test for the new Chancellor of the Exchequer. He has been relatively quiet over the last few days going through the UK finances with a fine tooth comb after being left a difficult situation by the Labour government. We have seen some announcements regarding proposed cost savings and the full extent of UK national debt but next week and the forthcoming budget will be vital to the reputation of George Osborne.

There's no doubt that the knives are still out for George Osborne with many people suggesting he is too inexperienced for the position of Chancellor of the Exchequer, at least at this moment in time. However, since entering office just a few days ago he has been very forthright and very confident in his press conferences but as ever the proof will be in the pudding at which point we will see whether he fights as good a fight as he talks.

There are many figures waiting in the shadows to take on the role of Chancellor of the Exchequer should George Osborne waiver but there is growing confidence that he has the ability and the presence to rescue the UK economy.
