But let’s leave these mealymouthed quibbles aside shall we? And celebrate along with the High Pay Centre. Fat cat pay has gone down significantly, in the very recent past. Thus, given the apparent iniquities of such high pay, this must surely have made our green and pleasant land hugely and vastly better.
Well let me allow a little bit of that disinfectant of sunshine into this debate. We’ve not seen any improvement in the rest of society – not even the slightest change – as a result of this narrowing of the pay gap. So, in fact, all that whining about the pay of 100 people only tenuously, if at all, connected to our domestic economy, doesn’t matter a damn.
Good, glad we’ve got that settled, so what other Shibboleths will we manage to disprove in the next 12 months?
