Red Tory Unpaid Intern Hypocrisy

Speaking of Pimlico Plumbers, founder Charlie Mullins’ internship policy hits the nail on the head: “in my book anybody who does a day’s work is entitled to a decent day’s pay”. A shame then that lefty unpaid intern double standards are spreading: Red Tory wonk and intellectual curio Phillip Blond is the latest to be busted advertising for expenses-only ‘volunteers’. As a trustee of CitizenUK, Blond’s name is on their campaign for a living wage so “every worker in the country can earn enough to provide their family with the essentials of life”.

Every worker, except those at Blond’s ResPublica think tank, it seems. They are currently advertising for an unpaid research assistant to compile research briefings, edit articles and contribute to projects. Naughty Phillip.

Quote of the Day

John McDonnell tells the Gallery/Lobby lunch what the priest told him to do…

‘He persuaded me to do this. He said you need to soften your image. So do Mumsnet and do this…. I’m trying to soften my image.’
