Are the rats leaving the ship?

The smell of defeat has led some in the Labour government to consider their career options as PR Week reports:

Hordes of senior Labour special advisers are said to be passing their CVs to headhunters and recruitment consultants amid concern that their stock is falling.

With Gordon Brown’s poll ratings plummeting, many Labour aides are now understood to be enquiring about roles at PR consultancies and large companies. A September cabinet reshuffle is also on the cards.

JFL Recruitment managing director Ros Kindersley said: ‘The political climate is changing, and whenever there’s a change in the political climate we get enquiries. More people are open to moving. It’s been across the board, including people in the top ranks.’

Heh talk about commitment to the cause!

    Thats funny. Wouldn’t surprise me if they revoked their membership and go looking for a position in the forthcoming Camaroonian empire.

    The words ‘Westminster bubble’ and ‘career politicos’ return to mind!
