Chancellor George Osborne's doodle realises $31,500 in charity auction

Despite the polls suggesting otherwise, George Osborne proved to be the people's favourite



The piece shows the Budget Box that Osborne holds up every year when the UK's annual budget plans are announced. The price achieved was reportedly more than three times its estimated value.

Selling as top lot, the sketch beat other celebrity doodles from the likes of Sir Paul McCartney and artist Anthony Gormley.

Conservative party members are proving popular at auction, with David Cameron's Fiat 500 showing a 51% increase on estimate in November 2012.
