A local Tory party deputy chairman posts an advert on W4MP hoping to enlist at least nine months of (free) help from a “volunteer campaign manager”. Those looking to take on this challenge will be subjected to a rigorous selection process:
“Acceptable applicants will be put on a long-list and will be interviewed by phone. The five most suitable applicants will then be short-listed and interviewed in person.”
Scrapbook reckons this local association might be slightly more grateful for the help in the thankless task of getting Tories elected in, errrr, Hartlepool. The ad even suggests they are after someone with a degree:
“Applications from students and recent graduates are particularly welcome.”
This arrangement might be vaguely tolerable … if the manager and beneficiary of this whole process was not a 17 year-old Tory Boy who is still in college.
“I understand more than anyone the problems faced by working people”
Not that you would gather this from his output on social media, which is more about quaffing Bolly and — we are not making this up — dining with European royalty in the House of Lords:
We hope young Duffy gets the AS level results he is hoping for today.
UPDATE: Perhaps not!
Two Bs and two Cs… Disappointing. I foresee resits. #Resultsday
