A retired couple from Cardiff shared a few bingo tips with George Osborne during his Cardiff trip. The chancellor joined Shirley and Colin Nixon for a game at Castle Bingo earlier today, after he announced in last week's budget that duty on bingo would be reduced to 10 per cent.
Mrs Nixon, 81, said: "I never expected to give the chancellor a lesson in bingo. He asked what to do and I told him - and he was brilliant at it. But then you would expect him to be good with figures, wouldn't you?"
"I think he would have stayed all afternoon if he had the time," Mr Nixon, 74 said. "On the last game, he was only three numbers off from winning. He didn't ask us many questions because he was concentrating hard on what he was doing."
