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.

    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.

Gyles Brandreth writes in his memoirs:

“Sunday, May 10, 1998

Early start: appearing on Breakfast With Frost, to be broadcast from 11 Downing Street. The Chancellor [Gordon Brown] is grouchily amiable, but so earnest — and still biting his fingernails to the quick.

After the show, he took us upstairs to his flat. He lives above No 10, while Blair and family are in the No 11 duplex, which is bigger and more like a proper house.

I was intrigued that, when he took us into his bedroom, the Chancellor rather ostentatiously opened the built-in wardrobes, as if he wanted us to see the women’s frocks that were hanging in there.

They looked quite large, but I don’t think they belong to Gordon. I assume they belong to his girlfriend [Sarah Macaulay, who he later married].

I presume he was keen for us to know that he has one — and that she’s not a ‘beard’. I don’t think he does anything without calculation.”

Now the SNP know how UKIP voters feel all the time.
