George Osborne Caught Parking In Disabled Bay

Do you believe this, readers?

Chancellor George Osborne did not realise a car he was travelling in was parked in a disabled bay at a motorway service station, the BBC understands.

The Daily Mirror published a photograph of the chancellor getting into a Land Rover parked in the marked bay.

But a Treasury source said Mr Osborne had been dropped off near the M4 service station entrance to buy lunch.

The unmarked police Land Rover was not driven by the chancellor at any point, said the source.

The incident is understood to have taken place on Wednesday.

The Treasury source told the BBC the chancellor had got into the car and left the scene without realising that it had been parked in the bay.

Mr Osborne did not condone his driver’s parking decision, the source added.

But a witness reportedly told the Mirror: “I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw his driver pull into the disabled parking bay.

“It’s not as if they were in a rush to move. The car park wasn’t exactly full and there were plenty of other, ordinary spaces.”

    Maybe we should change the signs to READ: PARKING FOR THE DISABLE, BONE IDLE, IGNORANT AND/OR SELFISH!
