          Mister Hayes may well be ideal for the job, given his supposed knowledge of liars, thieves and scroats, although he may find a different order of crookedness and super deviousness he never saw in South East London

    This post should be filled from the Job Centre.

    It is far too important to be left to pensioned State employees.

    Needless to say not a squeak to be heard from the Opposition Leader.

    This job was advertised as a permanent job with a deadline for applications. The deadline was then extended (I assume as insufficient candidates came forward). I spoke to one of the girls at the recruitment firm, she didn’t appear to think that the job was a tricky one (shows how clued up she was) and thought that the ideal candidate would be somebody with a civil service background, as they would know the “procedures”.
    I didn’t apply as I didn’t think the salary offered a reasonable return for the grief you would encounter from our esteemed politicians.
