That's only one person, it's hardly going to break the bank.

He's kept a lid on demands for other pay by capping police, armed forces and nurses pay at 1% for the next four years which will save the taxpayer billions and it's been by taking these tough decisions, in the face of criticism, to get our country back on its feet that have meant we've got the fastest growing major economy, we've got record levels of employment and a ten year low of unemployment, we're moving from a high tax high welfare and low pay economy to a low tax low welfare and high pay economy.
Is this satire? I can't tell :indiff:





This **** doesn't come cheap you know.

Technically it wasn't a pay rise as she got promoted to a new role, I believe that she is now his chief of staff.

After imposing a pay freeze on public sector workers and scraping 500,000 jobs in an attempt to save money, he is now giving his image advisor a 42% pay rise out of public funds.

So no money to spend on teachers or nurses, but plenty to spend on making him look good. All in this together, or something.
There's some people on here who call him personable and a classical liberal, 42% isn't high enough.
