Last week George Osborne was announced as the new Editor of the Evening Standard. Osborne accepted a £650,000 part-time role with the investment firm BlackRock. As well as advising the financial giant, Osborne gives after-dinner speeches, chairs the Northern Powerhouse Partnership and is completing a fellowship in America, in addition to being MP for Tatton in Cheshire.
Many are saying Osborne should step down as an MP or shed the other roles. What’s Your view on MPs at Westminster? Shouldn’t they be forced to focus on the one job alone of being an MP? Or can they multi-task and accumulate roles willy-nilly?
