Andrew Mitchell Has Not Been Promoted

The master of his dark arts, Andrew Mitchell, may well have spun his way to a new job, but trying to package it as a promotion is a bit much – in fact it’s the total opposite. Going from the Secretary of State to Chief Whip means a £30,000 pay cut.* He’s also no longer a cabinet member, merely having attendance rights. It’s always nice to see a former banker reformed though…

*The Chief Whip is paid at Minister of State level.
