George Osborne makes £320,000 from speeches in one month

Former chancellor George Osborne made more than £320,000 over 31 days for giving speeches, records show.

Mr Osborne declared payments for six speeches between 27 September and 27 October, including to a US bank and a university.

The Tatton MP was sacked by Theresa May when she became prime minister. He is now a backbencher.

There's not much you can say to that really, especially when you work hard and earn a fraction of what this man earns.

Is he worth it?

Personally, I don't think so.  I don't think so, but that's a not bad salary for a month's work.  It's just a shame the rest of us can't earn that kind of money for a month of wind-bagging!

Hey Timelady, thanks for your comments - I did wonder if anyone even noticed the "Gripe The News" section, which was added at the suggestion of a regular visitor many years ago. Talking of which, I think the WG is around 20 years old now!!

Very true, he's probably not worth it but if I was offered it I'd definitely wouldn't be turning it down....and I most definitely am not worth it!!
