Ed Fordham Update: the advert has been removed

From the Ham and High newspaper:

PROSPECTIVE Parliamentary candidate for Hampstead and Kilburn Ed Fordham has removed an advert for an unpaid role in his campaign team following a challenge by a member of the public.

The advertised role involved arranging the Liberal Democrat candidate’s diary, dealing with media enquires, writing and planning press releases and working in the local campaign office, and stated the worker must be prepared to work flexible hours.

    Let’s be 100% accurate about this. Ed Fordham is claiming that

    “The position was not a full time role and that’s why it said the hours would be flexible”

    However the advert absolutely did not say that the hours would be flexible, it said that the person must “be prepared to work flexible hours” - very different!

    And I am at a loss to understand why Mr Fordham would take it down if there was no problem with the position.
