Strange Jowell Movements

Among those walking through the Aye lobby as Labour voted to ban MPs from holding paid directorships and consultancies was Dame Tessa Jowell. So strongly does Tessa feel about MPs’ “double jobbing” at consultancy firms, that she is paid £1,000 an hour working for… Mentore Consulting. On their website Jowell’s services are advertised to clients: “she has a great commitment to the development of talent and sharing the lessons of experience”, “making a difference to the diversity of senior leadership”. Of course, any clampdown on outside earnings won’t affect Tessa because she’s standing down at the election. Leaving her free to tell colleagues: “Do as I say, not as I do.”

Quote of the Day

Councillor John Thomas, Keith Vaz’s Leicester East Constituency Labour Party Chairman says…

“This is great disappointment to me, realising that I have spent over 30 years of my life working for a party that I now know that I have nothing in common with. This is not the party I joined, the party for decent working people. I can no longer follow the clown that leads the Labour Party, he is heavily influenced by the Trotskyite Len McCluskey and is now as the Hoki Coki leader, in out, and shake it all about he has turned this great party into a laughing stock.”
