Civil Servants should not earn more than the PM

Civil Service Pay has been drastically cut by this government, and not before time. Bear in mind the PM does not make this much. His salary is £142,000

The figures for those civil servants earning more than £150,000 are set out below
In 2010: 372 earned more than 150k
2011: 291 earned more than 150K
2012: 234 earned more than 150k

When people talk about cutting te cost of the state this is one very good example.
The salary bill for senior government officials has been slashed by 18%, saving some £9 million. The civil servant who raked in the most cash was Olympics boss Dennis Hone, who pocketed £315,000 for his troubles. The 234 still share almost £50 million between them…

  1. If you want people to /earn/ less, you give then less work to do, or less valuable work. What you really mean is you want civil servants to be /paid/ less, and very likely for the same amount and value of work.
