Boris Gets a Pay Rise

Last week the Telegraph gave new Tory MP Victoria Borwick a slap for raking in £100,000 a year for her three jobs. For some reason they neglected to look into the outside interests of another, more prominent London politician.

Boris Johnson infamously described his rumoured £250,000 Telegraph salary as “chicken feed”. This month BoJo has declared a £22,916.66 payment for his column, which, if we assume is a monthly fee, means they pay him £275,000 a year. That would appear to be a 25 grand pay rise since 2009.

The £67,000-a-year Uxbridge MP has also landed an £88,000 advance from Hodder and Stoughton “for a book as yet unwritten”, on top of his £140,000 salary as London Mayor. He also made another grand “for sale of Chinese subrights for book already written”By Guido’s calculations that leaves him just shy of £600,000 a year…

UPDATE: Boris will have to take a pay cut from his Mayoral salary, down to £47,000 for the the final year of his term. Still leaving him on a cool half a million.
