Is Osborne an idiot?

What Osborne has said about this makes me laugh. Apparently the taxes that Google have paid "were on profits made under a Labour government"

Osborne has been chancellor since May 2010. Why has it taken so long to get this tax? The only logical answers are that the Tory's coalition partners, the LibDems (remember them), somehow managed to convince the tax office that the taxes shouldn't be collected, or alternatively Osborne is useless. Down vote for answer 1, up vote of answer 2.

Ah, It'll be fun times when he's PM and Trump is POTUS.
