Where's George?

This is turning out to be a strange election campaign. I am even starting to feel sorry for Georgie-Porgy. The Guardian reports:
Naturally, there was no sign of George Osborne, who is now widely believed to have been bundled into a priest hole last week, and may well be secured there for the remainder of the campaign. Poor George. Imagine being so distasteful, even before holding office, that it is regarded as politic to keep you from public view, in the manner of an acutely porphyric Renaissance princeling who once tried to hump the Queen of Spain's leg. Pray heaven he gets an outing in the next few days, or people will begin to talk.

I thought that he was supposed to be managing the Tory campaign. But the faceless suits seem to have taken over.
