A Look Into The Machiavellian Ascendance Of Arguably The Most Influencial Politician In Our Generation
on 25 September 2016
A well-researched as well as informative but short of insight biography of George Osborne, one of the very rare people that I don't particularly like nor always agree with but hugely admire. Janan Ganesh's detailed narrative failed to deliver an answer to the ultimate question: What serves as his motivation to all this? The then Chancellor is described as both detached (to an extent) from politics as a young teenager and ambitious enough to join the "guild" at the age of only 23 to be a professional politician. Confusing contradictions like this sum his image of a mixture of a natural born politician and a near enigma when it comes to personal life (while so many rumours suggest he had led a wild lifestyle, considerable voices indicate that he is a man with shyer and relatively quieter personality) up. Ironically, I am as skeptical about his motives behind every move as him about both left and right's ideologies. I considered taking a guess on how he ticks and his opportunity of a comeback but eventually choose to, as he once said, see how things fly .
