Luciana Berger’s colleagues were amused to hear she had hosted a round-table summit on “well-being in the workplace” last week. As Guido revealed in yesterday’s Sun column, not so lovely Luciana’s record as a nightmare boss is the stuff of Westminster legend. Berger has had no fewer than 15 assistants since becoming an MP in 2010. They are: Hadyn Belfield, Eve Byrne, Katherine Thompson, Richard Durber, Jason Keen, Geila Alpion, Kaitlyn Degnen, Joe Fortune, Daniel Whittle, Ryan Jones, David Clinton, Rebecca Rowland, Thomas Caygill, Sarah Mills and Sheila Murphy. One bruised aide tells Guido: “She’s the worst of the lot.” The true number could even be higher, as some staffers may not have lasted long enough to be registered.
If any current or former staffer who has felt Luciana’s wrath would like to talk about their experience, in complete confidence, they can contact Guido’s new hotline for parliamentary staff who have been bullied in the workplace on 0709 284 0531, or at this email address. Discretion guaranteed…
Who does she think she is, David Ruffley?
UPDATE: Luciana tweets:
I believe it’s important to provide paid work experience opportunities in parlt eg: http://t.co/IkueNTjBsB . I will continue to offer these.

Don’t say Guido didn’t warn you…
