    So he could have stayed and earned his salary or leave with an unearned salary? Very difficult choice?

    Lord P may have had this in mind:

    “Thou shalt not kill, but needst not strive,
    Officiously to keep alive…”

    Which in modern day lingo means: “Go kill yourself, as I sit here watching and don’t stop you.”

    I have never sacked anyone as I always believe the other person could be me. I am one of the elite so I am not expected to know, believe, or practice modern international management standards.

Sarah Vine writes of Esther McVey…

“McVey told Grazia that she hasn’t married or had children because she ‘never found anyone to wind her biological clock’ … If I remember rightly, half the current Cabinet would have cheerfully ‘wound her clock’ if she’d given them a glimmer of a chance.”



Flight Watch says:

Russia Today is a cauldron of bullsh*t. The only people that take it seriously are deluded conspiracy theorists. Other RT journos have resigned citing the same reasons.

It’s about as believable as Press TV, KCNA of North Korea or the Daily Mirror.
