Labour spin merchants have too high an opinion of themselves

I just have to quote this item from the Indy's Business Diary in full:

Labour aides not going cheap

So much for socialism. PR Week magazine reports that "scores of former Labour Party advisers" who lost their jobs when their bosses were booted out of power are missing out on alternative careers in the public relations sector, which has always been a favourite bolthole for political aides who find themselves back on the job market. The problem, it would seem, is that most are asking for "completely unrealistic" salaries. The agencies apparently balk at their six-figures demands.
