Stephen Byers A Different Angle

There is justifiable outrage at the antics of Stephen Byers, Patricia Hewitt and Geoff Hoon apparently offering their services to lobby groups in order to further feather their own nests. Cynic that I am of course, I wasn’t in the least surprised which goes to show how low politicians have sunk in my estimation. However, that’s another matter.

What struck me though was the expected going rate for this ‘service’. Three to five thousand Pounds per day for advice and I use that word advisedly.  Now that is around ten times more than the average worker gets for a whole week never mind for just a few hours in a day. It just goes to show what a rarified atmosphere these people live in and is symptomatic of the greed that has helped to bring our country to parlous state that it is today.
