I LIKE George
He is the sort of child who should grow up to be a really lovable rogue
Evidence that he is in any way loveable, though? A the moment I see nothing about him that isn’t really easy to dislike: he is a bragging bully, and an arsonist.

Wot he needs is somefink to give his life a bit of direction. A youth club, perhaps, where he could pick up some useful skills like fire safety (tutor: Rob the Torch).

It’s a bit unfair that he seems to have taken after his uncle Ed rather than his father.
