Gideon 'George' Osborne singing "fuck tha police" at the top of his voice in Brixton Academy in 1991. We'll be honest, we really can't picture it, but apparently it happened. Maggie Thatcher must be turning in her grave.
The astonishing revelation that the UK's Chancellor was a fan of the legendary N.W.A. came in an interview with the Mail On Sunday, where he also revealed that he was a fan of Taylor Swift, Sufjan Stevens, Bob Dylan, James Taylor, St Vincent and writes his speeches to the Goldberg Variations by JS Bach.
