The innumerate chancellor

Huff Post states:
George Osborne has said he will focus "110%" on pulling the UK economy out of recession in the wake of a warning from the Bank of England that there would be zero growth in 2012.
Speaking on Wednesday afternoon the chancellor admitted that the forecast was "disappointing" but said the government now had the opportunity to "give its 110% attention and effort and energy" to create growth.
I suppose 100% is not really good enough.  Leaving aside his difficulties with basic arithmetic, does anyone really think that Slasher has even the remotest scooby-doo on how to create growth?
