Osborne to edit London Newspaper

Exactly what is Osbourne up to ?

Now he is the editor of a London paper how is he going to find the time to do his other jobs ?

A previous editor is quoted as saying he was working up to 90 hours a week doing the job !

I wonder how much money he is raking in from these jobs, not that he needs the money, likely some other motive.

Who else would get away with it ?

Re: Osborne to edit London Newspaper

Maybe the perk of the job is that he will find himself a better one? Calls for him to stand down as MP and...

 

The former chancellor described his new job as a “huge honour”, adding that as the paper’s editor, “our only interest will be to give a voice to all Londoners”.

 

Looking more like a Tory Britain everyday.

Well there you go, I didn't even know he could read, as he certainly can't count!

This should make the Tories more popular that ever with the working class. What an utter disgrace.

Re: Osborne to edit London Newspaper

In a time when people are desperate for work, this sets a very bad example, having multiple jobs and earning millions a year when there are unemployed people who are trying to get jobs which are occupied by holier-than-thou louts like this one...

 

So, someone's set up a petition, of course, to say, pick a job, cos he can't have both...

He's building himself a power base, it's that simple.

He's not doing it for the money - he's being paid less than the previous editor.

Not doing it for the money eh. Do you know how much this guy has earned since he left office? These people are on a different planet.

Yes I do. We are talking here about the payment for editing the ES not his other jobs.

Relax, his erstwhile employers will eventually realise his true value.

Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

They claim that they deserve their MP's salary (plus everything on expenses) because they work so hard, but if it is possible to have no less than five other jobs, it can't be that strenuous.

Well if he doesn't need the reported £200,000 a year @artmo maybe they shouldn't be offering it?
