‘GEORGE OSBORNE ‘COULD APPLY TO BECOME BBC CHAIRMAN: Christopher Hope (£ Telegraph 17/10) reported that the post of BBC Chairman had been formally advertised with a closing date for applications of November 11, and that the government had increased the salary for the part time role from £100,000 to £160,000 a year for a three to four day working week. He speculated that those being urged to apply now included the former Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne, who had resigned from his role after the EU referendum in 2016, and now reputedly held several jobs, including as a fund manager at BlackRock, for which he was said to earn £650,000 a year for one day’s work a week.
