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…

    The left-wing hordes says:

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

    A personal tragedy for her, and after only such a short time too.

    Dave says:

    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.

  5. 5
    Viperous Old Vince says:

    Here’s hoping that Nick Clegg isn’t off the taxpayer dime in 2015. Honest.

  6. 6
    And Murray's beard says:

    Has he come out yet?

  7. 7
    A plastic surgeon says:

    Never liked Kay Burley! That’s why I put a face on her that looks like she’s accelerating towards the camera at 5G.

  8. 8
    An MP's taxpayer funded subsistance is for life, not just for Christmas says:

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

  9. 9
    Whack-a-mole says:

    First good idea she’s had get a job early – there is likely to be a glut of ex liberal crimocrats on the market next year.

    Ed Militwit says:

    It’s a great year for British sport. Performance is up 300%!

    Wacht am Rhein says:

    As if they still had Deutschmarks to drop, some Germans seem to be hearing the distant sounds of a much beloved former currency dropping.

    Gordon Brown says:

    British flops for British sportsmen

    "Dishface" Cameron says:

    Pass the sick Bag says:

    But what is she holding?

  20. 20
    Maimed Codger says:

    Well at least she does not have to put up with… Trump Turnberry… To trump here in the UK means to break wind… Fart… so it will for ever be known as the Fart Course… or to follow the natural progression,,,, a pile of Shite… Probably…

    Malala says:

  22. 22
    Pub Bore says:

    Julia Goldsworthy says:

    It’s a good job us Lib Dems never ‘follow through’ on anything.

    UKIP is the only way to vote says:

    You stole our money and our pensions, so you get some of it from your own bank account, besides £12billion a year is given to charities in our name but not with our permission, use that or have you found another city that the taxis need gps.

  27. 27
    GCHQ says:

    After perusing the IP we conclude it’s some nut activist from Doncaster.

  28. 28
    And the solution is? says:

    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.

    Another jobs worth going around the swings and roundabouts.

  35. 35
    Cornish Patsie says:

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

    As for the house of Hanover, weren’t most of them mad?

  36. 36
    A1 says:

    Lobbyists are scum who undermine Democracy. As bad as party whips.

  37. 37
    Helpful surf (geddit?) says:

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

    Fred the pensioner says:

    It is vitally important that JGBrahn is locked up asap and the keys to the lock safely and securely disposed of.

  41. 41
    Fred the pensioner says:

    You must be the only people in the whole country that think that. This miserable bastard needs to go back to Dunblane (better give him a flak jacket though).

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
