Further to the stories
about the Miliblogger’s taxpayer funded blog, Tory Radio
has calculated that since Miliband says
…he has an official effectively acting as his blogging assistant who does about 10 hours work a month at a cost of £300. Now if that was equated to a full time equivalent that would be say 40 hours a week at £30 an hour for 52 weeks which is a whopping £62,400 salary.
£62,400 a year is more than an MP’s salary. The blog should be hosted by the Labour party and the asssistant’s salary should be paid by the Labour party. Miliband should concentrate on sorting out Defra’s serious problems rather than profile raising, partisan propanda blogging.
