We bet that flight back from Africa was great fun! She was allowed to resign but only because of political etiquette. She wasn’t going to have a job when she left May’s office.
Never forget she was one of the 5 to refer to ‘Lazy Britons’, she was also part of a team of spin-doctors who were paid to help a tobacco firm diffuse the negative publicity surrounding British American Tobacco. One of her jobs was to lobby MEPs to cut any EU directives to control tobacco.
Seems this was a nice little earner. She was working under the umbrella of Shandwick PR. They were looking to charge BAT for 279 hours each month. Pretty Useless had her name down for 100 of these hours at £165 an hour. The team at Shandwick were on a monthly retainer close to £40,000 a month or nearly half a million a year!
Don’t go feeling sorry for her.
