Will Hutton's High Pay Hypocrisy

Miserably left-wing Will Hutton was chosen last week by the government to conduct a review into excessive pay. Fair play you may think for the former Observer editor who has consistently argued that the government should tack to the left, but as is so often the way with the Guardian reading metropolitian elite, he doesn’t quite practice what he preaches. Although unpaid for his new government advisory role, Hutton still writes for the Observer and Guardian. He is also on the exec  of The Work Foundation

Though consistently talking about best financial practice his own charitable think-tank’s accounts are some 32 days late. But don’t mind that, the old accounts revealed far greater hypocrisy. Look at the staff pay table. As head honcho and mouth of the organisation you know which end of that list Hutton is on.

If he wants to see fairer pay will he be giving up the £180,000-a-year he takes home from the charity?

Quote of the Day

Emily Thornberry tells Labour activists some home truths…

“…we must all acknowledge, that there are sickening individuals on the fringes of our movement, who use our legitimate support for Palestine as a cloak and a cover for their despicable hatred of Jewish people, and their desire to see Israel destroyed.”
