MPs criticise George Osborne for accepting editor role before clearing it with watchdog

23 Apr

The committee said: “We disapprove of the announcement of Mr Osborne’s appointment as editor of the Evening Standard without waiting for Acoba’s advice. 

“This sets an unhelpful example to others in public life who may be tempted to do the same.” 

The committee also highlighted his appointment as a part-time adviser to the US investment giant BlackRock, working one day a week for £650,000 a year.
