The new politics looks very like the old

From the Observer:
He [Nick Clegg] is expected to announce that Alan Milburn, the former Labour minister, will become a government adviser. The arch Blairite – who previously chaired a committee looking at fair access to the professions – will become David Cameron's "social mobility tsar". (1)
I thought we voted Labour out so we didn't have to have clowns like Milburn in positions of power.

Still, good to see the politicians creating these high falutin' sinecures for each other.
