Corbyn’s Commissars Confirmed

Last week Guido reported that Corbyn was planning to centrally assign political advisers (PAds) to his Secretaries of State, rather than let them appoint their own aides. The move is seen as a highly controversial Corbynista power grab in moderate Labour circles.

The job of Political Advisor to the Shadow Secretary of State for Wales has just gone up on the vacancies page on the Labour party website. Instead of applicants being instructed to send their CVs to Nia Griffith or a current staff member in her office, as happened previously, they are told to email a central Labour party address. A requirement of the job is not just to “support… the Shadow Secretary of State”, but also the Leader of the Labour Party”. What is it with Jezza and jobs for the boys?
