        Who earns £630,000 at the Royal Opera House? says:£630000-royal-opera-house

        As arts cuts announced today start to bite, few people are aware that the Royal Opera House pays its two top people more than £630,000 and nearly £400,000 each. Although Covent Garden is refusing to identify them, it is likely that they are chief executive Lord Hall and music director Antonio Pappano. But they are not likely to have to sacrifice their earnings even while smaller arts organisations fold.

          thats the problem with many of these arts organisations, bleating about the evil tories but then paying admin managers shedloads of money.

          thats why i get fed up when some luvvie says we should save this, but expect others to pay rather than spend thier own money


          • Quiet Bat Person says:

            So are more than 23,000 going to die in the UK from cold and cold-related illness this year?

            Gotta cut the benefits for the poor to keep the bankers comfy. Nice one, Gideon.

      Ironically, climate change for Western Europe brings colder winters but scorching summers – as like Canada on the same latitude. No bullshit, I read it somewhere.

        It’s due to the Jetstream, or lack thereof in Canada and Europe.

          The Union of Polish Plumbers says:

          Atlantic Gulf Stream, acshually. Move cold fresh water released from Artic/Greenland glaciers slows that down, and it’s knock-on effect is the jet stream, due to sea evaporation or something. Told you, I have read it somewhere, nowhere near Norwich Uni mind, or whatever that establishment is.

    Nessun dorma! Nessun dorma!
    Tu pure, o, Principessa,
    nella tua fredda stanza,
    guardi le stelle
    che tremano d’amore
    e di speranza.
    Ma il mio mistero è chiuso in me,
    il nome mio nessun saprà!
    No, no, sulla tua bocca lo dirò
    quando la luce splenderà!
    Ed il mio bacio scioglierà il silenzio
    che ti fa mia!
    (Il nome suo nessun saprà!…
    e noi dovrem, ahime, morir!)
    Dilegua, o notte!
    Tramontate, stelle!
    Tramontate, stelle!
    All’alba vincerò!
    vincerò, vincerò!

      Alphaboobs says:

      Anyone else remember that famous night on the Beeb when the bloke doing the weather turned round and looked at his map, whereupon he noticed that the ‘F” on ‘fog’ had fallen off. Without hesitation he was heard to mutter “Where’s the F in fog gone?”

    Jungle Drums says:

    I think the government needs to look at the privately owned private sector for economic guidiance rather than the corporate PLC publicly owned private sector.

    Living in 98 percent white Merseyside says:

    Up to a few years ago I had read the Express all my adult life. I stopped when I got fed up with the headlines which were either about Diana, Madeleine or the f**king weather!

      No point wasting money on rags these days anyway when you can get it all on the internet on your pc or phone these days.

        Get most of my reliable news over the garden fence in me back garden. And no, that is not an euphamism – behave!

      I read the Times for over 20 years until it went tabloid. Now it’s just a parody of itself. Have never in my life bought the Express, Sun, Mirror or Mail.


  29. 39
    Chris says:

    I missed that headline, I must have had the page the other way round when I wiped.


  30. 53
    Colin says:

    Bigging up the Daily Express ….. with a non-story? Is this payback for Dirty Des because he lets you write in the Daily Star? I thought you were above all that.

      Are you still on Radio Luxembourg and living in
      Keynsham – that’s Keynsham: K E Y N S H A M, Bristol?

      Time for my Horlicks (or I’ll suffer with ‘night starvation’ and Dan Dare will be furious!).

    Other shocks today:

    Bears shit in woods.

    Politicians renege on promises.

    The sun rose.

    Inspector Blakey (bus inspector) says:

    Apparently someone from The Met tipped them off about it. Those scummy polis are still taking bungs.

    BE says:

    BRITAIN will be battered by an Arctic blast from Iceland next week – bringing snow, ice, flooding and bitter gales.

    This is a (wrong) predictionof October’s weather, not December’s.
