  • £58,000?!? Really?!? Why not £142,000

  • £58000 is ridiculous, it's too low and the figures will lose all significance. Surely there would be more point in getting out the names of those who have currently refused to declare their earnings?

  • Heaven help us!! to retain the talent in the public sector ..the top employees are going to have to be paid a decent amount! the Pm should give himself a pay rise if he is so upset about others earning more than him. it sounds like he got the job he so desparately wanted and now upset that it doesn't pay enough! perhaps he should have trained up as a private practice solicitor!

  • I come late to this debate. However, in 50 years of Government legal practice in 4 Commonwealth jurisdictions I have never heard of a Government lawyer who retired with enough assets to establish Institutes of various descriptions and a lifestyle of which a pop star can only dream. I still await the release of the audit of Mrs. Thatcher's exit from government among others.
    Panorama have made that these audits just don't appear, despite the requirement to make them public
