COMPETITION: Why Would You Want to Work for Ed Miliband?

While the Tories seem to prefer not to pay their interns, Ed Miliband is offering the ‘living wage’ – £8.80 an hour – to hire a “parliamentary apprentice”. Candidates are required to send a cover letter answering, in no more than than 250 words:

“what interests you about working for the Rt Hon Ed Miliband MP?”

Guido thought he would put the question to his readers, so leave your 250 word response (or there abouts) in the comments. The wittiest entry will win a bacon sandwich…

    Dear Ed,

    My parents always taught me to learn from my mistakes, but I find it less problematic to learn from other people’s mistakes instead. At your side I could learn more in a week than I could in a lifetime of fucking things up myself.

    Yours,

    Hedwig.

    PS. You also have a nice perching arm.

    Dear Ed
    I would like to apply for the vacancy for Parliamentary Apprentice as advertised, at the lousy rate of £8.80 an hour, my interest in doing the job is to be first in the scuffle when your “friends” decide they will not be at the trough if they let you carry on.

    Dear Guido

    Please can you fix it for me to work for Mr Ed.

    What interests me about working for the Rt Hon Ed Miliband MP is the chance to evaluate at close range the persona of someone who has the charisma of a lettuce, the people skills of Atilla the hun, and the mannerisms of Mr Bean on grass.

    I believe this may assist me should I pursue a future career working at the Loony Bin for Clapped out Champagne Socialists (current resident: G Brown esq)

    I like House of Cards and the Thick of It, and I can’t think of anyone who can better teach me the dark arts and the manly steel to help me climb the greasy pole than Ed.

    Ed didn’t do much in government, which seems to be excellent training for future Ministers, like myself, and I was particularly impressed of the genius way he crafted union support for fratricide. Furthermore, Ed has taught me more about Labour democracy than anyone else will ever be able to. It doesn’t matter if your MPs, party members and others dont like you, just make friends with a couple of axe grinding northern socialists, and you’re guaranteed to get in.

    However, as a future parliamentarian, I believe I can learn the true art of politics, which is how to look dashing and fashionable, whilst being able to lead decisively. He looks great, all the time, with all the stress of life!

    PS I know westminster well and only want a bacon sandwich from a particular cafe.

    “what interests you about working for the Rt Hon Ed Miliband MP?”

    I am appreciative of his solitary and nocturnal persona. His upright stance, large, broad head, binocular vision and bin-aural hearing.
    And his near silent, yet deadly, killer instinct.

    He’s a natural bird of prey.

    That is a very good question. It’s a question that my constitutents and hard working families are consistently asking me. And I tell them is this. I am listening to hard working families and they are asking me why I want to work for Ed MIliband. And I say this to them -in answer that question. I say that that is a very good question, and it’s one that hard working families are consistently asking me, on the streets, in the cafes and on the Twitternet.

    And I say this to them – with every fibre of my being and speaking from my socialist core. And I make no apologies for this, because this is a question I am very passionate about – Why would you want to work for Ed Miliband.

    That is what I say. And that is what I continue to say. It’s what I have always said.

    “Mr Milibean has been my favourite show for years. That one where Milibean tries to eat a bacon sandwich is classic. When the Rabbi comes into the cafe and Milibean stuffs the oozing butty into his pocket, his face is so funny. And later on when he dumps the sarnie, thinking no one has seen and Nick Robinson slips on it and crashes into Milibean and he falls face first into Kathy Newman’s tits. And Milibean shouts ‘Airbags! Airbags!”
    Love that one.

    I have low self esteem and lack self confidence.

    Also, and more importantly, I hope it would give me the opportunity to get introduced to Luciana Berger who i would dearly like to fuck. In the arse. Hard.

I am a great believer in tax and spend as long as it’s other people’s money. I am very good at making stories up as I have a good imagination.
    When you employ me I would only need the minimum wage and I will donate the rest to MP’s expense accounts.

    Dear Mr Miliband,

    I believe I have all the qualities you’re looking for in an intern. I’ve had a long distinguished career in which I personally project managed a 300% increase in the sale of Nokias. I also helped bring the very important issue of workplace bullying to the top of the national news agenda. One of my proudest achievements was overseeing a special operation that involved ensuring the long-term safety of our environs. Indeed, one could say I helped save it.

    I’m a diligent and enthusiastic worker with excellent interpersonal skills. I work well in a team and can remain calm in pressurised situations.

    Yours sincerely,

Look at Balls, with the help of a few lessons he became an adviser to the Chancellor of the Exchequer. No fucking use at running a Country or it’s Economy but he learned to hold a tea-cup. Never did learn to drive.

    i want to see your blood boiling, again out of sight of the msm. i want to feel your real hatred for people when they refuse to be indoctrinated into your ‘socalist one nation claptrap and drivel; which you pitifully believe is your destiny to convince these unbelievers of.

    Your Twitter account appears to be run by disloyal, revisionist Blairite running dogs who post endless out of focus shots of you drinking cups of tepid milky tea as you patronise the public.

    Voters have yet to be convinced that you can run a bath, or lead a dog. Most know you have all the charisma of Roy Hodgson and that like him you are a loser.

    Ed Milliband is the perfect Prime Minister because his face says everything. Labours in the shit, the unions don’t know what they’re doing, who would want to be the next Prime Minster of England when the pretense of Democracy completely fails.
    When the Prime Minister is caught like a puppet between the 10,000 Mr Beans who run the EU, the City of London narcissistic crooks & the Psychos at the Pentagon who are now fighting the EU in Ukraine for power, control of the gas pipeline & holding the TTIP gun to our heads.
    Lets face it the politicians have out foxed themselves. They no longer have any allies they can trust & have no plan, just devious manipulation that even they have lost the sense of what they are doing. It certainly isn’t “for Queen & Country.” They’ve sold out to the Devil & now they find they have no weapons to defend ourselves because the US enemy has all the keys.

    Dear Ed,

    It has been my dream, since my dad told me to get a proper job, to go into politics. I can’t think of a better place to start than in the office of our next Prime Minister. However, as they’re not hiring, I am willing to offer you my prodigious talent.
    I have experience in managing expectations, as my surprisingly non-disappointed constituents will attest to. A must for this role I think you’ll agree.
    I can read to a basic level. Have some numeracy skills, so I at least know that something can only be spent once, unless it’s a bankers bonus or for capital investment over the medium term.
    I can write, sometimes even in meaningful sentences, although I realise this could be a problem and have been practicing saying much, whilst also saying nothing at all.
    I realise that quantum politics is the new old politics and together we will blaze a trail of stardust through the lobby of the House.
    So, like the blooming petals opening on a red labour rose, I propose to show the world the beauty that you’ve hidden beneath a veneer of mediocrity or succeed you trying.
    Together to number 10. (That’s the bus to Hammersmith, right? Only I told Yvette I’d be home by 6.)

I had to sit next to him last term and I got told off for putting my hand up in class to say that he had peed himself so I didn’t do it again, and when he broke my Thomas The Tank Engine rubber I had to pretend it was all right even though when I broke Rebecca Cox’s My Little Pony lunchbox accidentally Mummy made me buy her another one out of my pocket money even though it was an accident.

Imaginary friends are so much better than the real thing, don’t you think? I expect it’s like having no policies – much easier than having to go to the bother of making some up and then spending lots of precious time arguing with other people about them. ‘Use your imagination,’ is what my imaginary friend always says.
    Yours in expectation.

    Dear Mr Milliband,

    Pater and Mama (who send you their kindest regards) tell me that a spell as an intern in your office would be invaluable on my cv.

    The low salary will present no problem as I have a generous allowance and I have persuaded one of your favourite charities to give me a grant to further their lobbying of the party. Its CEO also sends his warmest felicitations and hopes to see you at its summer drinks party next week. He is anxious to discuss how much support he can give you without imperilling its public funding

    I would be happy to attend your constituency office occasionally as I understand there is a fast train service to Doncaster from London although would not be available for overnight stays. Meeting working class voters would be a novel experience which I’m sure I would relish and stand me in good stead when I seek a nomination (hopefully with your and HQ’s endorsement) for a safe seat which I would hope would not be too far North. I should dearly love to be the third generation of my family to represent somewhere in Parliament and Pater tells me that the location is quite irrelevant.

    If you think you need some diversity I should be pleased to organise a photoshoot with the university’s black ,gay muslim and disabled societies (or a combination of your choice). Sadly my PPE colleagues are hideously white and privately educated (as I am, alas) but we can all manage an estuary or Northern accent if it helps.

    I am computer literate and have only once made a fool of myself on twitter and I shall if appointed clear all the photos off my facebook page. You can count on Pater giving confidential briefings to the Guardian against Mr Balls.

My mother is a prostitute who made me fluff her clients when I was small. My brother was a drug dealer on the run, who’s now gone to join ISIS. And I’ve lived on benefits since I left school at 13.

    Professor I C Acunt says:

    I would like the opportunity to work for Ed Miliband for many reasons. It is very rare one gets to study up close the habits and behavior of another species. What and when does a Miliband eat for example – we only have one public sighting and that showed fascinating flashes of how different it is from humans. Mating is another one – Miliband D famously cannot impregnate a human female, but rumours are that Miliband E did. But it doesn’t look very female so is there something hidden there? Finally facial ticks – where to start. I like weird stuff so I’d like to study this wretched creature for the advancement of science.

    I’d also like to study to lowlife and sychophants that surround such a thing as Miliband. Do they have any self-respect or are they all lost causes? Do they control his actions or him theirs? Did he really, to use the vernacular, ‘bum’ Ed Balls?

    There you have it. Please advise in due course whether my application is successful.

    Dear Mr Millbandaid,
    I formally apply for the job of your intern.

    £8.80 an hour is, going forward, a pre-discussable level of remuneration for the benefit of all the people going forward, of which the LabourN&zi Party is None Other Than The Political Arm, and I welcome your input, seeing that you have left a “1,99” off the left side of the number given. I’m sire that you meant £1,998.80 and that “Labour Voters need to learn how to be empowered on the internet”.

    Being a Born Leader with strategically-focussed and goal-oriented vision, having as I do goal-oriented-drive, unbending ambition and success-desire-in-a-very-real-way, and also a team-worker happy in a strategically-focussed and goal-orientedTeam, as well as being a Born Leader, I will constructively use the time with yourself, going forward in a tactically-and election-leading-and-rigging focussed way, to learn so much more about the internal strategically-oriented and profit-based weaknesses of the LabourNa&i Party’s organisation, and also about postal voting.

    I promise to use this learning in a strategically-focussed and very real way, in the context of the coming future’s election fight, the one in the LTT of today, which is to fight to keep the Party at the Forefront of Change.

    @EU Funded Pro EU Troll

    Now commenting on yours of June 22, 2014 at 12:13 pm and in particular on the Angst over Spying article with which I find myself not fully in agreement.

    The FPI is an independent and highly regarded think tank based in the USA. However it cannot but avoid having a US-centric bias. That is not a critical observation but a factual one

    The fall of communism was both good and bad for the USA. It meant that the system of (at least theoretically) free markets had prevailed over communist top-down control. But it left the power of the USA unchecked. Seldom in history has this turned out to be a good thing. The apologists merged into the prevailing orthodoxy and started to destroy it. If you ever want a smaller scale version of this, look at Italy which makes a fascinating case study.

    The seeds of the crash of 2007 were sown well before this. I maintain a decade before in the UK – as I actually watched it happen in front of my eyes. In the US, it was earlier. I am aware that your take is much earlier than this but to my mind, the Clinton administration and the Blair/Brown administration signalled a stage-shift for the worse. That this term is used in cancer detection only heightens its sense of peril. The revelations of the recently defected Mr Taylor from the Labour party confirm my suspicions in every way.

    If you had been in the UK at the time (recognise that you may have been), you would have seen the victims of criminal action become the accused. As just one of countless examples, truckers were fined for having stowaway illegal immigrants climb onto the underside of their vehicles. The thinking extended into all manners of crime. It was easier to punish the relative law-abiding than the criminals. The farmer, Tony Martin, was a classic case. This whole mode of thinking became a worldview which then allowed bankers to fiddle LIBOR rates, politicians to fiddle expenses and health service trusts to do unspeakable things to those they were supposed to care for.

    Having established that, we may return to the FPI article which presents an apology for the security services. Of course spy agencies have to spy. Every country’s does. But the worldview in which they operate has become so skewed that they no longer undertake the difficult tasks they attempted before. It is easier to spy on everyone. Everyone is guilty after all… – If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear…

    Mission-creep takes place. Police become tax collectors. Everything becomes corrupted. Control becomes absolute. The communists could only ever dream of this.

    Dear Rt Hon

    I assume the £8.80 per hour would be for core working hours 11am to 3 pm less mandatory Human Rights kp Act one hour lunch break — all other hours would be recompensed at octuple time and a half in accordance with EU Directive 305./2007which you will not be familiar with as I have just asked my Brussels contact to make it up and back date it .
    I also assume but state for the record that these rates are EXCLUSIVE of my very substantial weekly disbursements which will be rendered via my VAT exempt Invoice from my financisl consultancy boutique based in Labuan and will be reflective of my commuting costs from that location plus necessary subsistence , entertaining etc .

    Sincerely

    Mehdi Hasbeen says:

    Dear Mr Miliband

    My name is Mehdi. My good friend Peter Oborne suggested I drop you a line as I’m very keen to work for [XXXX] The Labour Party.

    Although I am on the left of the political spectrum, and disagree with [XXXX] The Labour Party’s line on a range of issues, I have always admired [XXXX] The Labour Party’s passion, rigour, boldness and, of course, values. I believe [XXXX] The Labour Party has a vitally important role to play in the national debate, and I admire your relentless focus on the need for integrity and morality in public life. I also believe – as does Peter – that I could be a fresh and passionate, not to mention polemical and contrarian, voice in your policy discussions.

    For the record, I am not a Labour tribalist and am often ultra-critical of Ed Balls – especially on social and moral issues, where my fellow leftists and liberals have lost touch with their own traditions and with the great British public. In my column in the New Statesman, for example, I offered a critique of the five Labour leadership candidates, and their various inadequacies, accusing them all of lacking what George Bush Snr once called “the vision thing”.

    Apart from you, obviously.

    A bit of background: I am 34 and a half, and was born and brought up in the United Kingdom, the son of Indian immigrants (an engineer and a doctor) who came here in the 1960s. I am an Oxford graduate and am not allowed anything sharp. Bit like yourself.

    “what interests you about working for the Rt Hon Ed Miliband MP?”

    Dear Mr Miliband

    I am not the typical candidate for an apprentice. I am 38 and an experienced farm manager. I currently manage four full time members of staff and supervise one hundred and thirty five temporary employees during the harvest season on a mixed farm in the North East.

    I am responsible for subcontracting machinery and property procurement and development. I also manage relationships with legal and financial third parties ensuring quality and value for money from these contracts.

    The reason why I am applying for this role is I would like to have a pay rise I am currently on 7.56 per hour slightly more than the average for my sector and geographical location.

    If you haven’t got it by now I will now spell it out to you. The living wage is not economically viable for many businesses especially in particular regions. If you introduce it what will happen to my job. Do you think it will be viable to employ the hundred and fourty employees on the farm at £8.80 or £7.65 in the North East? These people will not have jobs and it will lay waste to the countryside and North.

    The problem with the living wage is the cost of living may be nothing for some people for example my wife who just wants a bit of filing for a few hours a week for a bit of pocket money. She doesn’t want to be worked hard for extra pay. Do you not understand how the labour market works?

    It is evident you don’t because you want to make employers pay because your too scared to raise taxes but many employers will not be able pay. What interests me about working with you is working with a man who proclaims to be labour when he truly doesn’t understand the working poor.

    Regards

    You mong

    This is a win win. We get to keep the extra revenue by not dropping prices. But in return you get the double bonus. Of lots of voters crying about high energy prices and more dead pensioners this winter. Who lets face it. Would of voted Tory anyway.

    I would like to work for you, even if I do have to pay you £8.80 for the privilege. It does appear to be a bit of a low cost way for me to get into politics and in the long run get onto the gravy boat. I was considering applying for a Job in the EU, but it appears that the Dutch have got them all sewn up.

    I believe that I can easily earn the £8.80 that I have to pay you back in next to no time simply by going into the House of Commons bar, buying a cheap pint and selling it outside to a tourist for a £5. You see with entrepreneurial spirit like that, I could soon be Chancellor of the Exchequer and do a few quick deals to get the country out of hock.

    @EU Funded Pro EU Troll

    Still on your same post. no point in my Fisking the ‘Angst over Spying’ article as you will see where I am driving at by now, even if you disagree.

    Agree the Nouvel axe/Neue Achse and Sun Tzu points.

    Cameron’s reckless approach in objecting to Juncker, the more especially if the latter is appointed, plays to Dave’s tactics. I am by no means sure he understands strategy, despite his Oxford days.


    Where do you find two people sawing & chiselling together?

    The answer is ‘Brasenose College’, which is decorated with an assortment of gargoyles, including two doing this. Osborne is not doing enough sawing but Dave…

    OK, Osborne was a Magdalen man but otherwise it fits.

    Now, I disagree with just one point of Dan Hannan’s article today. The EU mob have not fully discounted Brexit. Understands why he argues that way but the consequential loss has not been evaluated in the EU, especially if the UK’s growth begins to look like Australia’s.

    What are the likes of Denmark, Austria (after its next election) and even NL going to think?

    In this context, I see Schulz as irrelevant.

    Dave is boxed in a corner. He has to try and get those UKIP votes back. You, me and a few million others. He will not succeed with either of us but it might well be enough, even assuming Scotland says NO.

    Talking of new jobs and applications, when will the faux Juncker affair play out ?

    For Juncker to win, and defeat Mr Cameron, so publicly, and then rub his nose in it, is not in the best interests of the “colleagues”.

    That alone makes one think that a deal must be in the offing.

    There are strong rumours the entire Cameron “opposition” is simply manufactured, there are further rumours that we will see Juncker withdraw from the race sometime this week, rather conveniently on “health” grounds…..

    NB: For pan-europa philosophy – the roots were clearly stated in their 1923 manifesto. What they have appended in their web history is false revisionist propaganda: ie. Liberty / Mills / Locke. There is little to no English philosophical influence, much less libertarian underpinning them which is why their projection feels very alien.

    The European Movement may have had Mills / Locke underpinning (need to X-Check). That would feel more familiar.

    I am now at your post of June 22, 2014 at 1:17 pm.

    The issue is Snowden and I simply don’t pretend to know what he is playing at here.

    His initial action I supported before it was fashionable to do so. He is still a young man, intelligent for his age and well versed in his field but no match for the likes of Putin.

    Putin might as well have had his question framed for him, for all I know. I imagine what you probably mean by calculated strategy. I can see how you can present it as a “jumping the shark” moment, a meme which I missed at the time but understand of late. If you know any more than I do, then please update me. He must be very aware of Assange’s ongoing predicament so a real mistake seems less likely. I would be prepared to bet money that his visa is renewed on the basis that Putin stands to gain more from other similar types.

    My feeling is that, as the USA have left their sensitive data so vulnerable to interception in vast chunks, especially as they developed all the systems themselves, they are simply getting their comeuppance for sheer sloppiness.

    JadedJean25 and you did respond to the first post I made in this series but I am just dealing with your initial multiple posts with links so will avoid dealing with these now. The former’s stylistic approach is, can we say, interesting… :-) The first of this series did deal with another post which had a huge number of links that I was not able to completely explore upon first reading. It did have some carryover into this though.

    Dear Ed,

    Peace! I’m an ethnic minority female with transgender tendencies who is currently a freelance crystal healing practitioner, but have so far been dissuaded from following my destiny because of the endemic repression of the capitalist mode of production under the ConDem government.

    I feel alienated from my true species-being as a result of the vicious austerity programme of this democratically unelected government and this had led to issues with honesty which recently saw me arrested by the Police on groundless charges of being an illegal working class benefit claimant – I am actually a member of the underclass, I like to say!

    I am passionate about the Labour Party and have decided to donate a percentage of my weekly welfare cheque to show my solidarity with the sisters (and brothers) who are attempting a class struggle that will result in the end to the immiseration of the proletariat. It’s essential that we struggle for an egalitarian society, and only you can enforce this on the millions of people in our country who don’t want it – unless the EU gets there first.

    It is so good to know that I will be working for someone that does not want a team of “yes men”, which is why ‘yours truly’ will fit so well with the rest of your stinking apparatchiks.

    Because I love a challenge. So being in a position to pose him a series of simple bespoke questions. Specifically designed to draw out his personal interpretation of reality, and hopefully rectify the cognitive dissonance therein. Must surely constitute a challenge worthy of the name. Oh! and the best part being, I work for free.

    Vlad the Loudhailer says:

    Dear Mr Miliband
    I am a pensioner of modest means (having been robbed blind by Gordon the Moron), but I have the ability to make people love me and may be you, if you give me the job as your assistant. Let me explain.
    Last week I got a summons from the Inland Revenue so I went along with my lawyer to HMRC. The tax inspector said that I lived a very extravagant lifestyle (third world cruise in two years) but I have virtually no income so he could only assume that I was not being honest or I was a very good gambler. I said I was a great gambler but the Tax Inspector said he doubted that, so I asked if he would take a modest wager of £1000 if I could bite my own eyeball! The Tax Inspector took the bet, so I took out my right glass eye and bite it. He was amazed and a £1000 down.
    Wanting to be fair I suggested that we have another bet of £2000 that I could bite my other eyeball. The Tax Inspector realised that I wasn’t blind and readily and took the bet. So I took out my false teeth and bite my other eyeball. The Tax Inspector was beside himself with disbelief and £3000 down. Realising he was in a really big hole I suggested that we have a last bet, double or quits, this time I bet I could stand on the edge of his eight foot wide desk and urinate into the waste paper basket on the floor at the other side without getting anything on the desk wet. After sometime time he finally agreed to take the bet, so being a proud 68 year old I proceeded, but strain as I might I could only manage to urinate all over his desk and my tax return. The Tax Inspector was delighted, he shouted with delight at my abysmal performance and was £3000 pounds richer than prior to my visit.
    My Layer on the other hand put his head in his hands and groaned loudly. The Tax Inspector asked if he was all right. No replied my Lawyer, “before we came in he bet me £25,000 that I could pee all over your desk and you’d cheer with delight”!
    So Mr Miliband let me come and pee all over your desk, you would also be delighted and it would give me lasting satisfaction and revenge for what the last Labour government did to me.

    Yours sincerely

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
