Sarah’s CV

It seems that Gordon Brown’s wife Sarah has joined the board of the Harrods. Presumably her long years of experience dealing with a paranoid conspiracy theorist made her the perfect candidate for the job…

UPDATE: It would seem Al Fayed sold Harrods to Qatar Holdings. Still laughing at the picture though…

    UKIP Can Win in Rotherham says:

    UKIP is facing one the biggest opportunities in our history. You will all have seen the massive coverage of the Rotherham ‘fostering’ story over the past two days.

    We’ve been phoning voters in Rotherham all weekend. This is not a scientific survey, but look what people told us:

    Voting Labour…………………………36%
    Voting Conservative…………………0% (1 person)
    Voting UKIP……………………………25%
    Would consider voting UKIP……..26%

      Being in bed with Al Fayed is probably more morally acceptable than being between the sheets with most Arab ruling familes… Why does Ms Brown need to be director of Harrods, doesn’t seem right somehow?

    I thought the Fuggin Phoney Pharoah had sold out and it’s now owned by the Qataris.

    Still, Horrids will never be the same since it was British owned. What would Miss Barnes say…

    Sham says:

    I thought Sarah is getting enough money as it is from her salary as Gordon’s wife. Has he cut her salary? Granted, her contractual duties have fallen in number since he got kicked out. Maybe she only gets paid for the occasional public appearance they make together about 2 or 3 times a year. Since he’s usually flying around the world neglecting his duties as MP, it means they don’t have to constantly put the sham on public display to the extent they did when he was the unelected prime minister. And since he can’t rely on making money from speeches forever like Blair can and will eventually have to live on just his pension, Sarah knows he won’t be able to keep paying her salary and so she has to find ways to fund her existence, like joining the Harrods board. The only problem this gives rise to is her twitter feed in which she nauseatingly mentions her charity work every day, seemingly oblivious to the fact that it’s grotesquely vulgar for someone to constantly talk about their charity work. How will she square that with joining Harrods?

    Harrods is owned by Qatari’s.

    One Gordon Brown has been quite active in terms of the Qatar Foundation and maintains those links

    http://ukinqatar.fco.gov.uk/en/about-us/working-with-qatar/visits/pm-visit/qatar-foundation

    “Flights, accommodation and transport paid for me and my staff; value £6,645.44 for dinner and speech to World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE), Doha. Address of Qatar Foundation: PO Box 5825, Doha, Qatar. Hours: 4.5 hrs. (Registered 16 January 2012)

    I am not receiving any money from this engagement personally. It is being held by the Office of Gordon and Sarah Brown for the employment of staff to support my ongoing involvement in public life.”

    What a happy coincidence eh?
