BBC presenters earning more than the Prime Minister will be “named and shamed” within weeks if David Cameron wins the general election.
What is the obsession with what the Prime Minister earns? There\’s an element of falling into the Statist trap here.n What the PM earns and the relationship between that and the earnings of others is only important if we already swallow the concept that politics, politicians, the State, is of over riding importance.
If we, however, have the correct view of politics, that it\’s simply a method of selecting who will organise the scut work of society, then who earns more than the PM is of no more import than who earns more than the dustman.
Both absolutely essential jobs, yes, someone has to do them to keep the show on the road. But the idea that those more productive, more useful to society, should earn the same as a dustman never even crosses our mind. So why should it with the PM?
