Milibands blog assistant on over £60k pa??

David Miliband has mounted s strong rebuttal on the stated costs of his blog here yet something struck me as not quite right. He points out he 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.

David are you saying the official who helps you blog is on over £60k a year. That's more than an MP gets! Does your blogging assistant really need to be so highly paid? Mind you it is just an estimate……like the Olympic costs were I suppose!
