Rise of the EMOs

After the rise of the Special Advisors – known throughout Whitehall as SpAds – Westminster is preparing for an influx of “Extended Ministerial Office Staff”. Thanks to reforms proposed by Frankie Maude, to ministers’ offices, lots more political roles will be created: beware of young EMOS. Black eyeliner and piercings will be optional.

      These EMOs (sounds a bit like a washing powder) seem another way to get more jobbies for the boys and PPE grads, get them doing a proper job for ten years or so before actually doing politics.

    Does this mean the bars in The Commons will become more like Newcastle’s Bigg Market on a Saturday night than ever?

    A crappy old tv show called ‘Supermarket Sweep’ just flashed into my noggin: my overall impression is that certain Tories are getting as much stuff flogged off before the buzzer (or should that be police sirens…?) sounds.

    Ah!, I give up until 2015 says:

    So is the LibCon going to pay for these people or are they going to make the uncivil servants redundant or are they just going to do what they usually do dip into the taxpayers pocket to pay , why do we need Spads or uncivil servants, why do we allow this crap to go on, the politicians can come up with is to make the internet so called child friendly surely that’s the parent problem, is that all the control the politicians have now, can’t make a real decision as that is now done by the EU, fkin Fred Carno’s army has more brains than those evil politicians.

      Don’t knock it. I’d rather have the useless fuckers doing nothing that passing more loony laws.
