Who are the Superlobbyists?

According to Guido’s ass-fucking-loving colonial cousin Wonkette;

“Superlobbyists might earn up to $1 million a year. Newer recruits earn at least six figures, sometimes starting as high as $200,000 a year, a great leap from the Hill, where salaries vary from office to office but where aides are lucky to break $50,000 a year. Only a small percentage of the more than 16,000 Capitol Hill staff members make more than $100,000.”

Many of the lobbyists Guido knows are twentysomething alcoholics with esteem issues on £30,000. Some Guido assumes make £100,000 or so as they climb the greasy pole, but do many make £500,000 like their U.S. superlobbyist cousins?
Who are the Westminster superlobbyists? Are they worth the money?

UPDATE: Chime’s Lord Tinker Bell trousered £784,106 and Piers Pottinger a measly £509,954 in their last report. Guido thinks that you have to add on share options to that, taking them comfortably over the $1m-a-year mark.

Quote of the Day

John McDonnell tells the Gallery/Lobby lunch what the priest told him to do…

‘He persuaded me to do this. He said you need to soften your image. So do Mumsnet and do this…. I’m trying to soften my image.’
