You might think being a Member of Parliament in the UK would be a full-time job, but apparently you’d be wrong about that.

On Friday morning, it was confirmed that former Chancellor of the Exchequer — and current MP for Tatton — George Osborne will be the new Editor of the London Evening Standard.

Yep, that’s right: “Will continue as MP”.

Apparently, Osborne will edit the paper “an average of four days a week”, giving him time to continue with his duties as MP.

Across Britain, people were freaking out.

Then the jokes started.

Perhaps this person summed it up best.
