Gordon in the morning: No Harry, not happy

Poor George Osborne. He turned up to switch on the Christmas lights in Knutsford, only - as Gordon reports it - to be booed.

Gordon claims that the audience had been led to expect that Harry Styles out of One Direction was going to flick the switch, and the booing was in response to Osborne turning up.

To be fair, I think Osborne is quite capable of turning a crowd into a hissing mass of discontent without having to not be Harry Styles.
