I Had That John Prescott in the Back of My Cab Once...
If we ever neededm proof that there was waste at the heart of government, this morning's Guardian Media Section provides it. The above advert is for a Parliamentary Officer for the Government Car & Despatch Agency. It pays £21.505-£28,706. The first line of the advert reads...
Running any fleet of vehicles can be a very exacting experirence, but when your customers include Tony Blair and Gordon Brown then you have to be on your toes!
But these are nothing to the horrors of running a Government Car Service for the Deputy prime Minister. How, for example, do you account for all those special detours to Doncaster?
You might think that one Parliamentary Officer was quite enough for an insignificant Government quango, but oh no, the Parliamentary Officer reports to the Director of Government Mail - whoever that is.
A cushier job, I cannot imagine.
