Miliblogger V Guido

Cost to the taxpayer:

Entertainment Value
Not fit for purpose v Fit for purpose

What They Say About Each Other
“Recycled Westminster gossip” v “Boring, jargon-filled wonkery”

Guido thinks that the Miliblog is partisan, therefore it should not be financed by the taxpayer and administered by civil servants. It should be paid for out of Labour party funds and run by them, not on government servers at the taxpayers expense. Or maybe he should just concentrate on sorting out the mess he is making at DEFRA instead of wonking off on his blog with unreadable drivel?

Hat-tip : SpyBlog


*The £8,150 figure is dubious and widely presumed to be a fiddle, most informed sources put the figure nearer £50,000 to which has to be added his six-figure salary. According to a parliamentary response “It is estimated that around 10 hours of staff time per month is spent administering the Secretary of State’s blog the cost of which is estimated at £300. In addition, technical support costs around £900 per year. It is expected it will cost a similar amount to administer the blog in 2007-08.” Note the weasel word “estimate”, a Sir Humphrey get out in case they are caught out.

Former public schoolboy Chuka Umunna told the  ‘Exit From Brexit Dinner’…

“Remainians, Remoaners, I don’t care what the label is, I’m proud. It’s fashionable to label everyone in this room as the liberal metropolitan elite . . . This caricature is promoted by a bunch of former public schoolboys!”
