Girl With the Dragon Jobs, Two

Can the government’s new social mobility tsar manage a piece of breathtaking hypocrisy on very his first day? Yes he Caan. Appointed by Clegg, James Caan of Dragons’ Den fame, says parents should not help their children get a job. Apparently they should “let the child stand on his own two feet” as “you don’t want them to feel as though they don’t have to make the effort”. Meet Hannah Caan, James’ daughter, employee at his private equity firm Hamilton Bradshaw and on the board of trustees at his charity.

Don’t help your kids get a job, help them get two…

Quote of the Day

Lucy Allan explains her positive comments about the Brexit Party…

“If EU elections are held, Leave supporting voters will want to vote for Leave supporting candidates… Usual party loyalties will be eclipsed by the Leave v Remain divide. It’s good to see strong candidates in the Leave camp. However, I sincerely hope we leave the EU before these elections are held so that we can move on and not waste time and money on unnecessary EU elections.”
