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…

      I suppose they can’t get advertising? Not a big enough readership?

    The Labour Party says:

    Don’t worry, just give the Co-Op a call, they wank over throwing money at us!

    Oh dear, it would take a heart of stone not to laugh ;)

    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.


    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.

    Plonker Dave says:

    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?

      The Tit in No 10 says:

      And remember chaps!!!! After many years out of Office, the Tory Partee chose me, – ‘Dave’ – insufferable jerk and Bliar lover – to lead them!

      Says it all!

    Sir William Waad says:

    Why are they using a silhouette of a right foot?

      Timothy 'UAF Warrior' Lloyd-Davies says:

      It’s a left foot stamping on your face.

      They were using an amputee to be politically correct, dear.

      Bloke with PhD in Now to tell Right from Left of a Billiard Ball says:

      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 ….

      It’s just a matter of 180 degrees depending upon which way the wind is blowing.

        A boring git says:

        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.

    Andrew Efiong says:

    Looks like they’ve shot themselves in the Left Foot!

    Will Straw and Company look like a prize birdbrains, they can’t even run a budget for a website!

    Mario Draghi says:


    A European bail out is it’s way.

    Mustard Picadilly says:

    Sounds like the website is as bankrupt as the ideas it promotes.

    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?

    I am in favour of bust progressives.

      That’s nice, dear. I think the weather is going to be fine. Will you be going?

        Elsie Beattie (83 and a quarter) says:

        Actually, my Reg, god bless him, used to suffer with terrible beachy head on our annual trip to Morecambe Bay, dear. I was forever warning him to lie on his back only.

    slightly ludicrous post as we all know interns are currently slaves everywhere. just go onto 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.

Chris Bryant talks to the Times Diary about a famous gay actor:

“I don’t think I’ve had sex with him. He says we had sex in Clapham. I’m fairly certain I’ve never had sex south of the river”

Progressive Inclusion Champion says:

Great to hear Carswell call for inclusive policies and that UKIP must stand for first and second generation immigrants as much as the English.
