    Have you seen the Standard lately? Anyone who ever read comics as a kid could do it in their sleep.

    In his younger days he twice had, and didn't pass, job interviews for trainee journalist positions. Having failed to make his way in the Press, he then got a job as a researcher at Conservative Central Office, and the rest is history

    I thought this was a Rake's progress from corrupting Mary Poppins to sleeping with Katharine Viner

    Will Georgie get to keep the Standard job

    “I thought it was important to be here, though unfortunately we have missed the deadline of the Evening Standard,” the former chancellor joked in the House of Commons, to a mixture of cheers and jeers. “In my view, Mr Speaker, this parliament is enhanced when we have people from all walks of life and different experience in the debate and when people who have held senior ministerial office continue to contribute to the debate,” he said.
