George Osborne: Britain's 'kamikaze chancellor'

British Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne arrives in Downing Street, in central London, on June 28, 2016Finance minister George Osborne, who ruled himself out of the race to be Britain’s next prime minister Tuesday, played a key role in warning against Brexit, heading a campaign rivals dubbed “Project Fear”. The Daily Telegraph dubbed him the “kamikaze chancellor”, in reference to his formal title as chancellor of the exchequer, suggesting he would stop at nothing to secure a vote to stay in the EU and aid his political mentor, Prime Minister David Cameron. After the shock result of Thursday’s referendum — a 52 percent vote to leave the European Union — Osborne, 45, remained noticeably quiet, making his first public comments only on Monday in a failed attempt to reassure jittery financial markets.
