GEORGE OSBORNE APPOINTED AS  EDITOR OF THE LONDON EVENING STANDARD 


Former chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne has been appointed editor of the London Evening Standard.
He will take up his role in May, editing the newspaper four days a week, but will remain as Conservative MP for Tatton, in Cheshire.
Mr Osborne, who was sacked as chancellor by incoming Prime Minister Theresa May last year, replaces the current editor Sarah Sands, who is leaving the Standard after five years at the helm to join the BBC.
He described his new role as an “exciting and challenging job”, saying he was “thrilled to take it on”.
