Leveson Lover’s Large Bill Blows Brian’s Bluster

When the Leveson lovers story broke, Brian responded by telling Tory MP Rob Wilson that “Ms Patry Hoskins assisted in the largely mechanical exercise of collecting and organising the evidence”. Adding that  “absolutely no role” in work on the section of the report addressing the culture, practices and ethics of the press. Well today we learn she was paid £218,606 for this apparently limited role. It does not add up…

      How can they even agree to pay someone £200k for a few months work?? No-one on the public pay checque should be paid more than the PM. End of story.

          Words fail to describe the disgusting behaviour of these two. Not the sex which is obvious and up to them but the double standards, lies and dishonesty of the bloody lawyers who pocket such huge amounts in the process. Whole circus was to benefit the greedy lawyers and hypocritical lefties/libdems.
          Lefties

        £200k still rather adds up to a lot round here.

        My missus and I have been asking the kids to do a bit of collecting and organising in their rooms, and were thinking more in terms of a trip to KFC as compo.

    Nikki Campell the queen of breakfast radio was rather coy this morning when challenged to tell us how much he earned.

    “It’s private” came the reply. Why? He’s a public sector worker paid by a compulsory tax. Nothing to hide surely?

    Anyway for anyone interested he’s on around 500,000 a year. Great value I think for such talent.

      Licence fee is not compulsory, you only need to pay it if you have a TV / Watch live to air TV broadcasts.

      Don’t pay it, read a book instead, or watch TV programmes via the internet

    So, Mr Cameron is a man to whose statements the yardstick of ‘the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth’ does not apply.

    Its a good job he doesn’t normally work as a judge, as a judge is someone from whom we’d have to be able to expect the ‘utmost good faith’ and the very highest standards of probity.
