    Who an earth voted for this ***** 'Boris Johnson'

    "The mayor of London, Boris Johnson, today faced calls to apologise for his "out of touch" comment that his £250,000 earnings for writing a weekly Telegraph column were "chicken feed"."

    and why in hell would the Telegraph pay that much money for someone to write an article every sunday? when there are millions of people starving to death, and with this so called 'Recession'. hes already earning £140K a year

    This world is corrupt, ****** Capitalism & Comminism

    What a load of rubbish. He is perfectly entitled to that salary and in fact it is one of the lowest for a columnist of such stature. Richard Littlejohn gets £800,000 for writing for the mail. Plus over half of Boris' salary goes to charity. So compared to other columnists and given that he gives a lot away, he is perfectly entitled to view in this way.

    Boris deserves what he gets.
    People pay money for the Telegraph, who then decide how much to pay Boris. This is the most efficient system. Its why Cristiano Ronaldo is worth 80 million squid.

    Fair play to him.
    The Telegraph can pay him whatever the hell they want, it's a private corporation.

    People hating him for this essentially boils down to jealousy. Yes, i'm jealous/envious of him for this, but I don't think he's a **** and hate him for it, just aspire to be similarly well-heeled myself one day.

    I don't think the issue is that Boris is getting paid a quarter of a million to write for the Telegraph, but that he said that the sum was "chicken feed".

    A little bizarre, but hey, we knew he would be when we voted him in.
