Labour Peer wants unpaid child-minder (er…. intern)

New Labour peer Bryony Worthington is looking for an unpaid intern. A free researcher for a few days a week. What’s particularly amusing is that the candidate must “be energetic and like children!” Is she looking for an unpaid child-minder? “Bryony recently became a mother for the first time. She is looking for someone to act as her assistant as she juggles these three important roles.” More importantly how does this square with her leader Ed Miliband’s desire to see a living wage? Or indeed a London wage? Send a CV or a scolding email to

With graduate unemployment at its highest rate for over a decade she really should be setting an example. By not paying interns you are only inhibiting social mobility and entrenching a system in which the rich and well connected can get ahead. As a Labour peer I would hope she understands this.
