"Embattled Shadow Chancellor George Osborne has had voice-coaching lessons from a £100-an-hour expert in London’s Harley Street in an attempt to improve his image, it was revealed last night. Some observers claim that in the past year his voice has dropped in tone and his speaking style sounds less posh. Mr Osborne, 37, has received training from one of Britain’s leading speech therapists, Valerie Savage, who has advised several MPs and well-known broadcasters on how to improve their techniques."
