Another month, another declaration of extra-income from the former Chancellor of the Exchequer. According to the latest register of interests, George Osborne brought in over £90,000 last month for just five hours work.

This means that Osborne managed to out earn his annual MP's salary of £74,962 in less than a day. Mr S praises the ex-chancellor for continuing to prove -- despite his previous warnings -- that Brexit isn't so bad for business after all.
