Intern Aware Slam Slave Labour Bloggers

There was a time when broke blog Left Foot Forward could do no wrong in the eyes of Intern Aware, but the fair pay campaigners have attacked their old friends this morning after Guido exposed their slave labour internship scheme.

“We’re unimpressed. Organisations should live their values even when times are tough.”

This morning the bust progressives sent out their third email begging for money in just a week, but you have to wonder who is going to dip in to their pockets to prop up such rank hypocrisy…

    Of course, if it were a Tory site rightwing nutters would be only too happy to fund it.

    Dear Left foot forward

    Your problem is easy to solve you just need to print more money so you can over staff again.

    Regards

    Gordon, Ed , George, Dave … and the rest of them with their heads in the sand.

      ‘From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.’ The leaders have the ability to live the Champagne Socialist lifestyle, the followers need to volunteer.

    Hey Gideon — slip them a few million quid in the the interests of inclusive PC democracy — after all we have just increased the deficit by giving more to the Syrians, so why not fund our home grown leftwing cnuts?

      It’s complicated! – and would take a thesis to explain – but basically it depends on where you’re standing – or if you’re lying on your bakc looking up Hat’s ….

        The left footprint doesn’t appear on he thumbnail – except for a little bit of the heel above the second ‘R’ in ‘forward’. Click on it for the full image and you will see what I mean – if you’ve nothing better to do.

    Prof Jacques Thelad says:

    Scientific research suggests the left foot emits a stench much fouler than that of the right. It also claims the left foot is far more of a burden on the body’s resources and is dependent on the right foot to help the overall body survive.

    Incompetence to run out of money, humiliation to resort to begging and now they refuse to pay a day’s wage for a day’s work?

    slightly ludicrous post as we all know interns are currently slaves everywhere. just go onto http://www.w4mp.org and see how all parties do ask for them.

    I have actually contacted Chris Grayling about this, who then pointed me towards BIS, who then pointed me back to the department of work…. who then of course pointed me back in the opposite direction.

Following the revelations about Brooks Newmark’s paisley pyjamas, Hugo Rifkind wonders in this week’s Speccie what other politicians wear in bed:

“Chuka Umunna will sleep in Calvin Klein briefs, all the better to catch a glimpse of himself in the mirror on his ceiling.”



cynic says:

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
