AN Oxford graduate hoping to present on GB News is disappointed to learn she will first have to perform an entry-level role as a Cabinet minister.
Grace Wood-Morris, aged 22, who has a first-class PPE degree, applied to the broadcaster but was advised they only accept candidates who have served in at least one failed Conservative administration.
She said: “I knew I’d have to work my way up; maybe doing photocopying or taking Eamonn Holmes’s Krispy Kreme order. But to be told I’ll have to manage a ministerial portfolio is just demeaning.
“Admittedly it won’t be hard to get appointed given the competition, but do I really want to spend six months rubbing shoulders with the likes of Shapps and Jenrick?
“I’m young, I’m attractive, I should be yelling into cameras about wokeness ruining our Santa’s Grottoes, but instead I’ll be boxed in with a load of doomed losers hoping it doesn’t rub off.
“And it’s practically unpaid at about £150k a year. Peanuts compared to what you can earn shouting about trans Palestinians arriving in small boats or 15-minute cities causing cancer.
“I guess I’ll have to plaster on a fake smile and get through it. Maybe I can go so extreme right-wing I get fired. It’s worked for Suella.”
