Ed’s Wife and Her Cushy Labour Job

Guido would hardly have thought £250,000-a-year* Justine Thornton would have needed the money, but Millionaire Miliband’s wife has landed a cushy new job nonetheless.

Justine has just been named on a roster of lawyers providing taxpayer-funded work for the Labour-controlled Welsh government.

She must have passed the interview with flying colours…

*Guido sources say that someone of her experience and seniority at her chambers would be on £500,000. She doesn’t work full-time so we have halved her estimated income. Leveson famed Robert Jay heads her chambers.

UPDATE: Milipeople are grumpy about this. According to a Labour spokesman:

“This is a nasty little story which the Conservative Party has attempted to spread around for almost a week. It is both desperate and beneath contempt. Justine Thornton is a specialist environmental lawyer who was appointed in her own right in open competition. To suggest she got this work for any other reasons is an insult not only to her but to every working woman across the UK. What century are these people living in?”

    Typical of Labour to erect the completely false straw woman of “attack on prominant Labourite woman = attack on all working women”. The presumption must be that her contacts assisted with her getting the work, until the Welsh Government provides convincing proof otherwise (particularly as when work is handed out to the Bar it’s often done more on personality than cv – everyone at the bar has an excellent cv, so you choose barristers who “fit” and who you like working with). In the meantime, I look forward to the Labour Party congratulating Pippa Middleton for securing her book deal because of her amazing culinary and writing skills, as opposed to her being the next king’s sister-in-law.

    Although no fan of Ed Milliband or his lefty crew, this is a pathetic smear story.

    This is not ‘a job’. She is now one of a panel of 19 lawyers who have been assessed as eligible to conduct WG cases.

    There was no ‘interview process’. Applications for the Welsh Government panel were assessed entirely on paper.

    The rates of pay for WG work (at around £100 per hour) are substantially below what she can bill for private work.

    Justine Thornton is a well-regarded lawyer in her field. She was entirely qualified to be appointed to this panel. She is rated as ‘exceptional’ in Chambers & Partners, and has been recommended in legal directories for several years before Ed achieved his current dubious prominence in the Labour Party.

    Its how it looks that matters. As Miliband is given to telling us at every opportunity. Labour leaders wives seem to do very well out of their husbands.

    Labour, always making sure that the trough is carefully rationed for everybody but themselves.

    A friend in Scotland is unemployed and was sent to a jobclub or whatever they call them these days. He heard this exchange between a fellow jobclub member and the jobclub leader:

    M: The only places that are taking on staff right now are the councils.

    L: Have you applied for any of the jobs?

    M: Aye, but I never even get an acknowledgement

    L: Why do you think that is

    M: I don’t know anybody who’s in there already

    L; Do you think that is all there is to it, that you need to know somebody who already works there

    M: Well, they all seem to socialise together after work too, so I imagine that’s what it is.

    L: Do you support Rangers or Celtic?

    M: I’m not interested in football

    L: If you did, which team would you go for?

    M: Probably Rangers, because I’m not a Catholic

    L: Are you a member of the Labour Party?

    M: No. What’s that got to do with it.

    L: If you are not in the local Celtic Supporters Club, or the local Labour Party, most of whom are in the local Celtic Supporters Club, then those are the two reasons you will never work for the council.

    I suppose you could call it “JObs for the Bhoys”

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
