Gold-Plated Interns

Interns are a plenty with graduate unemployment high.  Only this government would pay someone with little to no experience more than the average national salary:

Departmental Work Experience

Mr. Willis: To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change how many interns work in his Department; what terms of reference apply to their appointment; what remuneration they receive; and how long on average an intern appointment lasts. [286823]

Joan Ruddock: DECC currently has one intern. DECC’s terms of reference for interns are still being developed, and are based on giving an individual a personal development opportunity and introducing them to the civil service, while completing a meaningful piece of work.

Remuneration for this contract is based on £29,191 (pro rata) which is in line with the DEFRA HEO starting salary.

This contract is for three months.

Not as if the government has a budget deficit or anything…
