David Miliband’s £15,000-a-Day Month

The latest instalment in Guido’s How Much Does David Miliband Earn? series reveals that the jet-setting former Foreign Secretary trousered an average of £15,000-a-day for his outside work last month. Miliband made £25,000 for his two-day job at Sunderland football club, £12,000 for 24-hours’ work advising Oxford Analytica and £23,000 for just one day at VantagePoint Clean Tech. He also enjoyed a £6,000 all-expenses paid trip to Washington. £60,000 for four days work. And he didn’t even have to go to the jungle…

    He’s at the ‘frontline not the front bench’ getting in touch with normal voters, working hard for his constituents….

    Err isnt he meant to be an MP trousering £64,000 to represent the people of Sunderland?

    You would have thought that monkey boy could afford some hair dye for that but in the middle of his head? I bet there are plenty of beauticians and hairdressers in Sunderland that could help him out

    Ed Milishambles says:

    So much if he did go to the jungle.

  10. 10
    I don't nee d no doctor says:

    Has he received a cheque for £40,000 from Cameron? Maybe not if his earnings go off-shore.

    wotson says:

    Is he still an MP?

    Hank the Cat says:

    Listening to the Nick Ferrari show this morning they had Mehdi Hasan reviewing the papers, he now describes himself as “Political Director of the HuffPo”. Does the HuffPo know they have a “Political Directer” and he is called Mehdi Hasan?

    I paid £1 .86 pence for a bunch of bananas in Tescos on Sunday .

    Will the price of bananas come down when we leave the EU ?

    Hugh Janus says:

    You would have to pay me – and handsomely – to listen to Bliar, Brown, Miliprat etc. Just can’t see what the attraction is. Why on earth do people pay good money to listed to any of these? It truly is the Eighth Wonder of the World….

  20. 20
    The Central Scrutinizer says:

    I have no problem with people making this kind of money, where they have expertise that is valued by others. However, I do have a problem with Labour supporters, members, MP’s and ministers making it – while at the same using ‘unfairness’, ‘injustice’ and all the other claptrap as a means of getting people to vote for them. They clearly don’t give a toss about unfairness and injustice – its just an easy hook line for Joe Public’s vote.

    Just look at the nett worth of Labour politicians like Blair, Mandelson, Brown and even Kinnock.

    It’s the same in the US. Obama has millions stashed by – and will become the wealthiset President of all time when he hangs up his community organizer boots in four years time. The Clintons? Jeez. Nancy Pelosi? They are all squirelling away fortunes.

    Q: Why aren’t the Labour front bench helping out at the local youth club keeping the kids of the street and out of trouble?

    A: Because they don’t really care. That’s all they care about is their own power, prestige and pension pots….

    Sarah ( a beard is for life not just for charity) says:

    Maybe someone should question why we still pay the sponging fucker not to turn up in parliament ?

    But don’t mention my Gordon , he’s far to busy to go there !

  22. 22
    Hugh Janus says:

    Ah yes, the Welsh Windbag – hated the EU so much that he joined it, and did the same with the House of Lords. Prerequisite for fleecing the taxpayer? Ensure that you remain completely principle-free.

    Wallace and Vomit says:

    That’s right lad. Don’t be fooled by the banana.

    Still no word from Rotherham council on the fuck up in Child services. Has Thacker been fired yet???

    Common Purpose Stasi says:

    David Miliband is of our number.

    He is our collectivist future PM, the human face on the jackboot of the East European Socialism his father so loved.

  28. 28

    Good to see the voters in South Shields getting their money’s worth from this northern, working class firebrand.

    Tony Blair says:

    That’s my boy! Now, can we hurry up and have a new war? I want more millions!

  30. 30
    Steve Miliband says:

    As Michael Gove said, the Milibands were just a trust fund away from working in the private sector

    Joyce Thacker says:

    The children are very happy with their new foster family, Mr Ahmed and his 14 male cousins.

    The Respect Party, The Socialist Workers Party, Liberty, Rotheram Council says:

    We are outraged at the arrest of a man for the ràpe of an 11 year old girl in Enfield. The man has human rights. Besides, the whore got what she deserved. English girls are all slags.

    If that’s socialism, can I have a slice please?

    I agree with Moussa.

    A CBE from the Queeny even.

  43. 43
    Hugh Janus says:

    Firing people like this is rarely the solution. They walk away with – or sue for – a vast sum of public money, which is in inverse proportion to the extent of their abject failure. They simply reappear in another publicly-funded ‘job’ and create chaos all over again. Remember the useless Cynthia Bower, one of the people involved in the 1,200 premature deaths at the Stafford Hospitals scandal, who was then considered to be capable of running the Care Quality Commission. She also walked away from that just before a highly critical report was published. It just beggars belief.

    ‘Resignation’ should never be capable of wiping the slate clean.

  44. 44
    Owen Mohammed Jones says:

    I was chatting to my new Muslim neighbour when he accused me of being racist.

    “What problem do you have against me?” he asked, “why are you so racist?”

    “Racist? What the hell makes you think I’m racist?” I replied.

    He said, “well, for starters, you have a peg on your nose while I’m talking to you.”

  45. 45
    Hugh Janus says:

    Sorry, forget ‘inverse’. The bigger the cock-up the bigger the payment….

    Reality Strikes without a flying picket about says:

    oops, edit, that’ll be DBE won’t it? Not well up on establishment gongs, you might be able to tell.

    Ed Miliband (Prime Minister designate) says:

    George Osborne – “It’s the end of the line.”

    Somehow, I doubt it.

    Socialism: You’ve got it and I want it. And when I get it you can’t have it (or something like that).

    Gary Elsby Stoke-on-Trent says:

    The trouble is that you people have no respect for our politicians.

    I heard and saw David say that he doesn’t want to be the Leader of the Labour Party or be a distraction for the ‘wonderful Leadership’ his brother Ed is doing.

    You should show more respect for our honest politicians and the honest words they speak.

  51. 51
    ah! monika's moniker is a gonner says:

    Red Egg Millitit..... says:

    £15k a day ? That is just about 12 months average pay for people in his constituency of South Shields.

    Greedy indeed ………….

    How many other occupations or public sector jobs allow employees to go and work elsewhere on company time for personal gain ?

    A cabbie says:

    I had that Michael Parkinson in the back of my cab once. He wasn’t a very good pasenger ‘cos I didn’t let him get a word in.

  56. 56
    jumbo says:

    It never ceases to amaze me that otherwise outwardly sensible, rational people can believe that either of the Milbands could be a prime minister in-waiting.

    What on earth do these two stand for (other than election, of course)?

    Why can’t the people of South Shields and Doncaster Labour parties find *a single* local, working class person the represent their views in parliament?

    These pair of to55ers are the very definition of champagne socialism, and you know that if either was elected, they would screw the working class over in the way the every single Labour government has done before them.

    That’s not a defence of the Tories – but at least they stab working people from the front.

    Guido, are you encouraging your readers to get out and support Lee jasper in the Croydon North by election; I can just imagine what fun you will have if, God forbid, he was actually elected

    Ed Miliband (Prime Minister designate) says:

    Phillip Schofield has handed David Cameron a list of suspected UKIP voters he found after a three-minute search on the internet.

  59. 59
    Hugh Janus says:

    Answer? The political class looks after its own. And then they wonder why the voter and taxpayer regards them as substantially lower than parasitic vermin….

    …and then asked One Term Dave if he will be speaking to any of them….

    Old story says:

    A man is driving a limousine down the street.
    A Tory boy sees him and thinks “I’m going to work hard and eventually I’ll have a car like that.”
    A Labour boy sees him and thinks “I’m going to take that man’s car away from him.”

    Westminster Gossip says:


    It’s interesting how he does not like comparisons being made with his brother ED but, he keeps popping up on Andrew Marr which only fuels speculation and comparison!

    Me thinks David doth protest too much!

  64. 64
    Reality Strikes without a flying picket about says:

    Huge, did you look in Dave’s eyes when he was handed that list? Well, let me tell you then what I saw in Dave’s mind eye – “tell me something I don’t fecking know Phil!”.

    I told the Social Services what the narsty Parki men had done to me. She said I was being wacist and exaggerating and telling lies. She said I had been watching too much about that Savile Row man on telly, who really was bad. Parki men are mooslims and it’s all part of their religion.

  81. 81
    Joyce Thicker (Ms) says:

    Quite right. He is a poor bleck guy. He needs counselling by Social Services to come to terms with why he felt like attacking the girl. Had he’d had his Benefits cut by the Government?

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
