      George Osborne has been named as the new editor of the London Evening Standard, the newspaper’s owner, Evgeny Lebedev, has said.

      Lebedev, who also owns the Independent titles, said: “I am proud to have an editor of such substance, who reinforces The Standard’s standing and influence in London and whose political viewpoint – socially liberal and economically pragmatic – closely matches that of many of our readers.

      “George is London through and through and I am confident he is the right person to build on the fantastic legacy of Sarah Sands.”

      Football is so beautiful because underdogs are able to achieve good results against giants. Regardless of what others say about our team, there’s always a chance. If you are able to take the pressure away from the team, sensations can happen. I have confidence in this Albion team

      Another PR win for George

      MP for Tatton just a part time job then, wonder what his constituents will make of it. Calling @El Presidente ..
