George Osborne must resign as a Member of Parliament

How can someone be a MP and a newspaper editor.
By taking the position of editor of The London Evening Standard you have created a huge conflict of interest, how can you serve the interests of the people who elected you as a Member of Parliament?
How can the newspaper your now in control of cover issues such as the Tories election scandal when you are a leading figure in the party under investigation? How can you promote the idea of a Northern Powerhouse when you are the editor of a London newspaper? These are just 2 of the many issues you now have to make a judgement call on.
Millions of people have suffered and are still suffering immense hardships as a direct result of your austerity agenda yet you see fit to accept this offer.
You see fit to accept this offer despite posseesing no serious journalistic experience, despite stepping over people who have dedicated their entire careers to work towards the prize that you've just been handed. That's your prerogative but don't insult your constituents and the wider publicly claiming you also represent their wishes.
