    Default What exactly does George ‘six jobs’ Osborne add to my economics degree?

    As if five jobs weren’t already enough, it was announced yesterday that the former chancellor George Osborne has been appointed as an honorary professor of economics at the University of Manchester. Osborne will not be leading any courses but will be expected to deliver guest lectures. The appointment of an economic policymaker who is not an economist by training makes a bold statement about the way the university wishes to approach the teaching of the subject.
    Snowflakes start to get, that free advice isn't necessarily the best advice

    The appointment has also been viewed as a development of the “northern powerhouse” agenda, with Manchester University representing a bastion of cutting-edge research in the “beating heart” of the project.

    He's never had any training apart from "liaising" with a dominatrix and not doing anything with her, or any of the lines of coke in front of him.

    Indeed he could.

    I avoided private / boarding school.

    Quite glad of that fact these days, although most probably poorer monetary wise for it
    Plenty of the rest of the family had a go however, with mixed results.

    Cheer up you could have had AssGuru as your daddy, in which case you would have to go to private school so you would learn to grab the rail firmly & shout 'thank you sir can I have another'
