>> Wanted, one editor for a high profile London newspaper, no experience necessary. Step forward former UK finance minister George Osbourne. A beginner perhaps when it comes to anything like running the Evening Standard, but a veteran at rolling up his sleeves when it comes to politics.>> Five years later, our economy is strong.
>> Even if the politics ultimately led to headlines of the wrong sort. Osbourne himself a victim of the shake up and the ruling conservative party that followed Britain's vote to leave the EU, a decision he had opposed.>> A vote to leave will push our economy into a recession.
>> Osbourne's boss, Evgeny Lebedev, used new media to help spread the news, tweeting he was proud to have an editor of such substance. For Osbourne, this is a chance to get his hands on the wheel for a change. And alongside his 48 days, 650,000 pounds a year consultancy at asset manager BlackRock, he should at least have the time for a new job, even if he doesn't need the money.
