With George Osborne at the Evening Standard, which publications should other MPs edit?

By Taylor Heyman

Ed Miliband for editor of Doctor Who magazine?

The owner of London’s Evening Standard newspaper announced former chancellor and sitting MP George Osborne has been appointed as the paper’s new editor on Friday.

The news was met with shock by most who heard it. We won’t go into detail, but we feel this tweet sums it up nicely:

The question is, if public figures are so good at journalism, what other publications should they lead? Well, Twitter users had a go at predicting the next big hire for some famous, and not so famous, magazines.

You may think that Jonny, but Ed’s got other ideas.

Not satisfied with our parliamentary representatives taking all the top jobs, some of us put ourselves up for a new role.

It looks like everyone wants to be a journalist.
