...[Miliband] has an official effectively acting as his blogging assistant who does about 10 hours work a month at a cost of £300. Now if that was equated to a full time equivalent that would be say 40 hours a week at £30 an hour for 52 weeks which is a whopping £62,400 salary.

Now, I know that Guido likes to think that he is ahead of the game, and therefore I think it only fair to point out that your humble Devil posted the same calculation on Thursday night, in my fisking of Miliband's blog costs.
So far this month, you have posted 10 times. In February, you posted 12 times. In January, you posted 14 times. And that is taking your official ten fucking hours a month?
And those 10 hours a month are costing £300—£30 per hour? That's a little more reasonable than the design fees, Davey; although it does mean that your official must be raking in something of the order of £62,400 per year (assuming a 40 hour week) which is not a bad screw by anyone's standards.
And I happen to know that Guido was aware of this posting because, knowing what a fan of Batshit he is, I emailed him the link.
