The former Labour MP David Miliband is facing criticism after it emerged that the charity he runs, for which he was paid more than £700,000, is offering unpaid internships at its headquarters in New York City.
The British culture is very down on unpaid internships. The American one markedly less so. The argument now being made is that an American organisation should operate by the British cultural rules.
And how colonialist is that? You know, we did try this once and it left boxes of tea floating in Boston Harbour.
