Ed’s Wife and Her Cushy Labour Job

Guido would hardly have thought £250,000-a-year* Justine Thornton would have needed the money, but Millionaire Miliband’s wife has landed a cushy new job nonetheless.

Justine has just been named on a roster of lawyers providing taxpayer-funded work for the Labour-controlled Welsh government.

She must have passed the interview with flying colours…

*Guido sources say that someone of her experience and seniority at her chambers would be on £500,000. She doesn’t work full-time so we have halved her estimated income. Leveson famed Robert Jay heads her chambers.

UPDATE: Milipeople are grumpy about this. According to a Labour spokesman:

“This is a nasty little story which the Conservative Party has attempted to spread around for almost a week. It is both desperate and beneath contempt. Justine Thornton is a specialist environmental lawyer who was appointed in her own right in open competition. To suggest she got this work for any other reasons is an insult not only to her but to every working woman across the UK. What century are these people living in?”
