Why should I tell you, who don’t even give your true name or address? An organisation has to go public all together.

Err, because you wrote an article headlined “Throw open the books so that we can see what everyone earns” stating that “trust and social glue are corroded by pay secrecy”.

And because, as you wrote, “the highly paid command the citadels of public debate, they grossly distort the true picture of the way most people live now. Making sense of reward is difficult – but the debate has to begin by throwing open the books. It wouldn’t hurt much if everyone had to do it together.”

Polly Toynbee is, Guido understands, on the books for £140,000 a year at The Guardian.

UPDATE : The Sunday Telegraph is after her as well.

Quote of the Day

Dominic Raab wrote in his letter of resignation…

“This is, at its heart, a matter of public trust,” he told the PM, concluding: “I cannot reconcile the terms of the proposed deal with the promises we made to the country in our manifesto at the last election… I believe that the regulatory regime proposed for Northern Ireland presents a very real threat to the integrity of the United Kingdom. I cannot support an indefinite backstop arrangement, where the EU holds a veto over our ability to exit…”
