George Osborne has just been appointed chair of the Northern Powerhouse Partnership.
While he was the Chancellor he had ample time to promote a Northern Powerhouse before he was sacked.
In addition he has been signed up as an after-dinner speaker by a US agency.
I do not think he will have the time to travel north further than the northern limits of the M25 due to his busy schedule.
