Osborne and realpolitik

The FT's Robert Shrimsley says that George Osborne is apparently telling colleagues that the harsh austerity programme he plans should the Tories form the next government will make him “the most unpopular man in Britain within six weeks” of the next election.
If this is true then he should be applauded for his honesty and derided for his candour.
If not then his 'Malcolm Tuckers' (see below) should be castigated for allowing the rumour to spread.
