‘The LSE can pay its diversity director £120,000 a year, but can’t pay its cooks and security guards a living wage. That’s disgusting.’

    A living wage or a market wage?

    However, he’s right about Diversity staff – they’re a pestilence.

        Diversify?

        Seriously, I think the job entails making sure preferential treatment is given to non-white non-British people.

        In the name of ‘equality’.

    Those manual labour types are a bit too diverse. Diversity Director only relates to chai latte vs rooibos tea.

    O/T

    Tried to reply to above post, found that mobile-phn txt entry auto-completes “rooibos tea”.

    This gross pretentiousness will consume us all. And the Chinese will take us out, whilst we weakly fight back hitting them with (Chinese) iPads.

    A sunny weekend usually finds me in Diversity Park. Chomping Khat with the Joery.

    "Lord" Glasman says:

    Remember, those working class types are a bunch of Express-reading oiks who just need the right marketing. Engender a bit of hatred, that’ll get them voting Labour again.

    The BBC is full of pathological liars says:

    All those years of being shat over by the previous Labour government and still no living wage. That is disgusting?
    How many millions has Tony Bliar made from innocent blood in the Middle East? Hmmm? He is still counting. That is disgusting?

    LSE Staff says:

    Err, except LSE does pay it’s staff the London Living Wage…

    http://www.citizensukblog.org/category/living-wage-campaign

    You can read about the award they got from… Citizens UK on that website.

    Glassman needs to stop being senile.

    It may pay its staff the living wage but if the cooks / guards are agency staff they could still be getting less

Dan Hodges on Team Miliband:

“‘Poisonous’, was the picture painted by one former senior advisor. ‘Dysfunctional,’ said one shadow cabinet member. ‘A bunch of medieval courtiers, not an office,’ said another. The most positive description I could get was ‘It’s a work in progress. They’re learning. Slowly. But they are learning.’”



Nick Clegg says:

Do you want lies with that?
