Blair attacked over No 10 'butler'
The Prime Minister's lifestyle has come under renewed attack after it was revealed that 10 Downing Street has advertised for a £50,000-a-year 'butler'.
He would be responsible for managing the household at Number 10, looking after VIPs, providing "world class" hospitality and supervising the cleaning of "all antiques and silverware".
The revelation came as shadow Welsh secretary Cheryl Gillan linked the Blairs' holiday arrangements with a "grab-it-and-run attitude" and a wider culture of selfishness in society.
She told the Mail on Sunday: "We have become the 'X-Factor' society where people want instant fame, wealth and gratification."
"The Government has contributed to this by creating a culture where people are more selfish and less socially responsible.
"It is appalling that we have a Deputy Prime Minister whose values are such that he is know as 'Two Jags', and Cherie Blair charges round an Australian supermarket collecting goods from the shelves for free. On top of that, the Blairs rarely seem to pay for their own holidays. It is a grab-it-and-run attitude that has led to a general atmosphere of greater selfishness."
The advert asked for applications for the post in a "prestigious office at the centre of Government."
The holder of the post would manage 40 staff covering building management, hospitality, security, events and cleaning, it said. They would create a new "hospitality and reception service" and a database on the needs of VIP guests.
The advert was placed by the Cabinet Office with a closing date of last September. The Tories used the Freedom of Information Act to discover the location of the job.
A Downing Street spokesman said: "We have thousands of visitors every year and it is a Grade One listed building, therefore it needs to be managed properly."
I agree that we have become an x-factor society!

Its sad, plenty of people i know are unprapred to work for the things they want and just expect to get it for free.. One day I hope they realise this is not the way the world works. But knowing my luck they will win the lottery and prove me wrong!
