Thursday, June 29, 2017

George Osborne has taken on yet another job - his sixth - leaving many people simply astounded he's been able to take on so much.

Many were surprised when, in March, he took his fifth job as editor of the Evening Standard. Others were outraged or amused.

The former MP will now work for the University of Manchester, too, as an honorary professor of economics, The Telegraph reports.

He is due to start in July and said he is "bowled over by this honour". The former Chancellor added that he's looking forward "to playing a part in the life of the University of Manchester".

Twitter users have responded to the news with jokes, anger and confusion. Even Nigel Farage has commented.
