This is something you might hear if someone (the speaker) was being very patronisng to George. Using the plural 1st person pronoun instead of the singular second person is a style associated with bossy nurses, or nursery school teachers (for example)

... it maybe supposed to convery a sense of kinship with George, but really it suggests superiority.

Do not try this at home!

Isn't that called the majestic use of "we". The "we" the Queen would use to refer to everyone?
