Yet another Tory sacked at the reshuffle has had the blow softened with a fancy title and financial reward. James Duddridge, until recently a whip, will be the next Chair of the Regulatory Reform Committee. The tedium of the role is compensated with a nice £14,582 salary top up.
It used to be that when you got sacked you got nothing in return.
It seems that rule only applies to women now.
