IN A CROWD pleasing move, George Osborne pledged to make £100m worth of Libor fines available to military and blue light charities yesterday.

The chancellor said he was “immeasurably proud of the work of Britain’s armed forces,” adding that he would make the money available to military charities and causes close to the police, fire and ambulance services, “to reflect our society’s debt of gratitude to our servicemen and women, and their families.”
