Spare a thought for Greg Knight the former chair of the Procedure Committee who was lured away from the safe £80,000 job, perhaps by the £92,000 salary, to be No. 3 in the Tory Whips’ office. Now he’s a sacked whip. Reshuffled into the deck on a back bench salary (£66,000). But he has his network to fall back on. In 2007, Knight was named as one of the 50 most influential people worldwide in the Historic Vehicle Movement. Broom broom.
