Post elections political parties often cutback on staff. Guido hears that tomorrow a number of party workers who could be described as as loyal Blairites will be getting their P45s. Those who have shown unstinting loyalty to Gordon have more chance of holding on to their jobs in these cash-strapped times. So much for Brownite inclusivity…
Some scepticism in the comments that P45s are going out tomorrow, but am assured by people getting sacked that they know it is coming.
UPDATE II : Just got an email saying “A lot of staff, including me, are leaving after the election. Not sacked, more subtle than that, asked to leave, told we’re not welcome/no future.”
