George Osborne Off to BlackRock Fund Manager

Recommended Posts

The pro banking/financial sector VI for those in power for services rendered is so blatant and obvious that it needs investigation under corrupt practices and made illegal it's so massively damaging to Britain, the British economy and to the British people.

I was wondering what news was going to be buried while Trump's speech was on.

George Osborne cashes in his reward for his nice little housing boom.

We're all in it together.

How on earth is this towel folder reject appropriate for this job? I take it there was proper advertising and interview procedure? Running a government department (which I'm sure is actually done by civil servants). It looks like jobs for the boys here the incestious relationship here between bankers and the government (think May, think Ledsome and many others) can't be good for the country. What happened to diversity when did an MP go back to doing something useful (and similarly paid) like software engineering or running a business (and no Sam Cams fashion business doesn't connt)

Given his financial expertise would you invest?

Honestly I probably would. He has delivered 100% on his remit of making the rich even richer.  

Past performance is no indicator of future performance, but I have faith in his unwavering dedication to screwing over the general population for his own personal gain.

Filthy shit-heel Tory gets paid off for his services to the City of London and Big Money.

What's the story here? They're all traitors and quislings.

One word sums up George's success: birth. Owes everything to being from the right family.

Same old same old isn't it....

Connected puppet in high position feathers the nests of his real masters, goes off for a few months under the pretence that places like Harvard actually want to pay tens of thousands to hear his 'lectures'. Takes just enough time off to be forgotten about then straight into a position that shows just who he was working for all along.

****.

Now now, we have no evidence to suggest GO was anything other than an exemplary towel folder.

Chancellor, however...

He is going back to their true masters.  Look at Gove almost getting a hardon with Trump. Farage will be crawling back to his rock,

So much for representing the people.

Why are MPs allowed to do other jobs? They constantly moan how busy and hardworking they are.

Are we taxpayers paying expenses to run his constituency office whilst he is off working privately for a bank?

Someone should start a petition, no MP should be allowed to earn more than say £50k privately. If they want to do so they can sod off and stop being an MP!

Why £50k, if there is a limit it should be time based. Perhaps something like no more than 8 hours a week.
