Barack Obama

Obama Mistakenly Call British Chancellor of the Exchequer 'Jeffrey'

Barry, it's "George"

George Osborne suffered humiliation in front of other world leaders at the G8 summit when US President Barack Obama repeatedly called him "Jeffrey" by mistake.

Mr Obama used the wrong name three times as the British Chancellor made a speech on tax avoidance, saying he agreed fully with "Jeffrey" and adding "Thanks for that, Jeffrey" at its conclusion.

The Chancellor did not correct the President. However Mr Obama, realising his error, apologised.
