Men and women across the country are suddenly leering in the direction of ex-Chancellor George Osborne, in the week he announced he’ll be earning £650k a year for one company while only working 4 days a month.
That, on top of his MP salary and earnings from after-dinner speeches, means Osborne will net around £1.6m in earnings this year as well as successfully pulling off the high-vis/hard hat ensemble he so often donned on BBC Breakfast.
Theresa Connell, 32 said: “I don’t know what it is, but suddenly I want him to root around my little red box.
“I like a man who has the ability to walk into a room and really shake things up. If you think about it he never really gave a shit about anyone, the archetypal bad boy of politics. Disabled? Find a new way to walk. Caring for someone? Not interested. Bless him!
“I think even Georgie would admit it was time to move into some new ventures, I mean what was left to cut? If he’d have kept going he’d have cut poor people’s hair off so they could be a little colder, but only to help to motivate them to find a better job and pay higher rent on a warmer house.
“I had a dream last night that he and I were making a naughty home movie, laying on a money bed, guffawing loudly at ghastly northerners and applying foundation to each other’s faces.”
