George Osborne Pockets £100,000 For Just Three Speeches After Being Dumped As Chancellor

Labour MP Andrew Gwynne told The Mirror:

“While George Osborne joked last night about losing his job last night at a glitzy awards dinner, pay freezes and rises in the cost of living are no laughing matter for millions of workers throughout the country.

“There is clearly no austerity for the man who as Chancellor cut public sector wages and made millions worse off.”

Osborne is on the books of the Washington Speakers Bureau, which also includes former prime ministers Tony Blair, Gordon Brown and Sir John Major, as well as ex-US president George W Bush.

The latest disclosure also showed Nick Clegg was paid £1,250 per hour to host BBC satirical news quiz ‘Have I Got News For You’.

The former Liberal Democrat leader and ex deputy PM was paid a total of £15,000 by Hattrick Productions for around 12 hours work.
