Two Weeks Later, David Ruffley Needs Yet Another Researcher

Readers will remember this month’s Guidorama investigation into Westminster’s Toughest Job: working for Tory backbencher David Ruffley. Just two weeks after his latest advert for a researcher, parliament’s answer to the Incredible Hulk is on the lookout for yet another helper.

Things must have worked out well last time, then…

    I had a friend that worked for him for a bit, before his ‘incident’. She said he often used to not come into the office, telling his staff he was home ill in bed, and then they’d catch him in Portcullis House eating and trying to hide. Or he’d blow up at them for no reason. She didn’t stay long either.

    David Ruffley deserved ‘Banner’ headlines at the least. ;)

    Can’t see why it takes a degree to do that job and a degree in what?

    He’s restricting himself to 50% of the yoofs.

    This man is a psychopath. In that regard, he has a number of fellow-sufferers in the place where he pretends to work.
    They may be pretty poor at HR, but they’re dab hands with the Expenses Sheets.

    Some less kind observers will state that Ruffley is a turd, who staged his ‘train debacle’ to get the media (and other polticians) off his case over the expenses debacle. One to remain on the backbenches methinks.

Rob Colvile reviews Russell Brand’s new book:

“Oddly, the person I feel sorriest for isn’t Brand himself – although he certainly comes across as a rather pitiable figure, projecting his own brokenness on to the world around him – but Johann Hari. Drummed out of Fleet Street for plagiarism, the former Independent columnist has washed up as “my mate Johann, who’s been doing research for this book”. For a genuinely talented polemicist, it would have been a humbling experience to have to treat this sub-undergraduate dross as the scintillating wisdom of a philosopher-king.”



Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
