David Ruffley Staff Saga: You Won't Like Him When He's Angry

Tory backbencher David Ruffley has placed a new advert for a research assistant in his Westminster office. Again.

The W4MP wesbite, which advertises job openings in parliament, often carries an advert for the Office of David Ruffley MP. Almost every month, in fact.

A Guidorama investigation can reveal that Ruffley has had at the very least 16 staffers over the last two years – a phenomenally high turnover for a backbench office. Frances Carlisle, Matthew Jupp, Hannah Lloyd, Emma Finch, Ben Rowe, Virginia Tuck, Madeleine Smart, Martin Smith, Katy Turner, Rachel Mawby, Michael Webb, Florence Cheek, Michael Horwood, George Rees, Harry Thomson and Nina Rosen have all been lucky enough to take part in the the hit series Westminster’s Toughest Job.

Ruffley’s man-management skills are the stuff of parliamentary folklore, and Guido hears reports of his “obnoxious” behaviour leading to bright-eyed hopefuls leaving his office in floods of tears, some binned after only days. Apparently, “to have been fired by Ruffers at some point is a rite of passage”. While no doubt some members of staff left for good reason, things have become so “shouty” recently that Ruffley has been reported to party whips over his behaviour. The job is still up for grabs – the closing date for applications is March 20th.

Quote of the Day

Heather Wheeler talks to Burton Mail about her tweet…

“It was a tongue in cheek pop after the European Parliament tweet – it was purely that. I also wanted to congratulate Team GB on a brilliant result and thirdly congratulate the Commonwealth countries who also did very well. Fourth, I am also looking forwarded to establishing new trade agreements. That was it – nothing more. Let’s just enjoy the summer!”
