George Osborne - New editor of the Evening Standard


#1

How odious


#2

Brings a new meaning to the phrase ‘Tory press’.


#3

Why the heck do people keep giving this man money and work


#4

Isn’t he still an MP? How can he have a full time job and still represent the interests of his constituents?


#5

This is what I believe is called “a genuine WTF moment”.


#6

Makes your skin crawl, doesn’t it?


#7

Last thing we want is privileged incompetent tories running the media…


#8

Like, a man with absolutely no journalistic, let alone editorial, experience just walks into a high-profile, influential job, having fucked the country over completely, and on the back of taking numerous highly-paid advisory roles and directorships.

Just, urgh.

#10

and it is completely, utterly normalised and expected. Like people will largely react by going “eh? that’s weird” and will move on


#11

He’ll have to resign his seat.

I guess that was always the plan though - both he and Cameron saw political power as a stepping stone - a means to and end of building influence and wealth.


#12

looking forward to Cameron hosting the One Show


#13

Hopefully he has a massive cocaine-induced heart attack on day 1.


#14

Beyond a joke. Fucking burn everything down.


#15

Said he’s not going to.

This all remarkably confusing.


#16

lololol what


#17

WTF. Like Trump and his cronies…they all know they are basically untouchable.


#18

Y’know what I think? I think this is part of Osborne’s scheming to get back at Theresa May for his sacking you know. All part of the plan. We’ll see her taking more of a pasting in the ES I reckon.
