Obama ‘Confused George Osborne With R&B star’

US President Barack Obama repeatedly addressed Chancellor George Osborne as Jeffrey during the recent G8 summit, according to the Sun newspaper.

Mr Obama is a fan of soul singer and musician Jeffrey Osborne, who enjoyed success in the 1980s with hits such as On The Wings of Love and Love Power.

Mr Osborne chaired a session of world leaders on tax transparency during the two-day event in Northern Ireland.

Treasury officials told the newspaper that Mr Obama did know the chancellor’s name, and had called him George when they first met at the two-day event.
