Goldsworthy Joins Lobbyists Before Losing Election

“Hanover Communications has secured the services of Liberal Democrat politician Julia Goldsworthy,” reports PR Week. The former LibDem MP turned Treasury SpAd for Danny Alexander was last heard from heralding her campaign to win back her old Cornish seat. Which is clearly not taking up all of her time.

Well at least she is off the taxpayer dime for the first time since 2005…

      I’ve convened COBRA to discuss the disastrous derailing of the Andy Murray wins Wimbledon to keep the plebs distracted from Osborne’s about to burst debt-fuelled Boom bandwagon.

      As an ex MP, a failure as an MP, a useless MP, she will still be drawing the tax payer ex MP dime.

      Anyone know what this outfit lobbies for? Probably some scam or other – like most of the rest of them.

      Gordon says that the solution to this is the same as any other problem.
      First throw money at it, truckloads of money!
      Second, wait until the problem solves itself or just lie about it being solved and quote how much money you wasted on it.

    Sad reflection on local Lib Dems that they’ve taken this useless woman back. Don’t they remember how she ‘bombed’ in 2010?
