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.

Jeremy Corbyn on Big Ben Bong Ban

“… if we have to miss Big Ben in reality for a while so that work can be done, well, that’s something we have to go through. It’s not a national disaster or catastrophe.”
