George Osborne might have been standing at the despatch box yesterday as Chancellor on a meagre £141,000-a-year. Instead, he’s trousered £320,000 for speeches to various bankers in the last two months alone. Pro rata that’s nearly £2 million a year, £40,000-a-week, over £5,500-a-day. More than many Premier League footballers make, and around the same salary earned by Leicester City’s champions Riyad Mahrez, Wes Morgan and Danny Drinkwater last season… 

Osborne made £70,000 speaking to the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association in Washington, as well as nearly £30,000 for a speech at Stanford University. JP Morgan paid him £81,000 and £61,000 for two speeches in New York. Then three weeks ago Osborne was paid £80,000 by Palmex Derivatives. He could’ve been slumming it in Downing Street, instead he’s earned more in two months than the average Briton does in 12 years…
