John Reid a champaigne socialist. Lands £50K a year job.

Another fine example of New Labour sleaze and champagne socialism: link
Former Defence Secretary John Reid has secured a £50,000 job with a private security company operating in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Dr Reid, who famously boasted in 2006 that he expected British forces being sent into Helmand would leave again ‘without a shot being fired’, is to be a consultant to G4S Security Services.

The company provides armed security guards to British Government employees stationed in war-torn countries.

Now had Dr Reid not been a government minister and had access to lots of useful contacts, I do wonder if he would have been offered this cushy job. Still Dr Reid who has said he is leaving politics will have no further need to be throwing punches at attendents.

No doubt he will have a bit more spare time outside of politics to teach his work colleagues the entire IRA songbook, which he was alleged to have done to Labour activists by one George Galloway.

Still at least he has lined his nest rather well and will be leaving the rusty penny farthing that is New Labour, having made it clear he is leaving politics at the next election.

Mind you no more sunny holidays with war criminal Radovan Karadzic, but as he is working for a security company I am sure he will make lots of new friends with murdering warlords in the Afghan hills.

New Labour a huge "gold standard cock-up", amoral, corrupt and evil to the core. Run by nomenklatura supporting a leader out of touch with reality.

I wish you wouldn't refer to this fucker as Dr, which is what they did when he was at health, persuading the Labour morons that he was an MD.

He is a doctor of African economic history, which in my book is about as useful as a doctor of U2 songs.

This fat bleeder used (could still be for all I know) a regular at a ponsey french restrauant in Picadilly. No change from £50 for a lunch,double that in the evening.
I believe he was still a card carrying commie AFTER the crushing of the Hungarian uprising,which was the time many plastic commies ripped up their cards.
Vermin, the lot of them (with the possible exception of Frank Field)

He used to be notorious with the civil service for insisting on the "Dr" bit at all times.

Fucking hell, I could have bought seven different ones based on the contents of my inbox this morning.
