FORMER UK FINANCE minister George Osborne has been appointed as the surprise new editor of The London Evening Standard newspaper.Osborne, 45, said he was “thrilled” to take on the job and wanted to make the daily “the definitive voice of the world’s most exciting city”.Osborne, a conservative lawmaker, was the chancellor of the Exchequer in prime minister David Cameron’s 2010-2016 government, dealing with the aftermath of the global financial crisis.He was a prominent Remain campaigner in last year’s referendum on Britain’s membership in the European Union.About 60% of the eligible voters in London wanted Britain to remain in the EU, but the UK as a whole voted for Brexit.“We will judge what the government, London’s politicians and the political parties do against this simple test: Is it good for our readers and good for London? If it is, we’ll support them; if it isn’t we’ll be quick to say so,” Osborne said.Osborne reportedly never saw eye to eye with Theresa May, and when she became prime minister in July after Cameron resigned in the wake of Brexit, she replaced him with Philip Hammond as finance minister.Social media mockery The Standard has the fourth-largest circulation of any British daily newspaper, at nearly 900,000 copies.The freesheet’s Russian owner Evgeny Lebedev said Osborne was someone of “huge political achievement, and economic and cultural authority”.His “political viewpoint — socially liberal and economically pragmatic — closely matches that of many of our readers,” Lebedev said.last_img read more
