    Default Maximum pay level in UK on it's way

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/8204530.stm

    In the same way the Low Pay Commission was set up in 1997 to advise on the minimum wage, a High Pay Commission was needed to introduce "a wide-ranging review" of pay at the top and bring in new measures to curb excessive remuneration, it said.

    Just set the maximum pay = minimum wage.

    Simples, comrade.
    I was miserable and depressed, but CUK turned it all around. Now I'm depressed and miserable.

    That is the second time in the last two or three days I've seen the banks who managed to escape nationalisation being lumped in with the rescued ones by dint of "being guaranteed by the taxpayer".

    It's a potentially nasty little twist. It seems to me that they are paving the way for yet more interference in the private sector.

    How many tractors are we supposed to produce this year?

    No doubt you believe that Barclays have had no help from the taxpayer.

    I have noticed that as well in the last few weeks.

    Same as in the last 5 year plan: none. So it is good to see our illustrious leaders are conforming to the plan. Hurrah for the Illustrious Leaders! (Which one is playing Unelected Prime Minister this week?)

    But remember, Iraq were the enemy last year, now they are our friend and always have been.

    Is it too early to open the Victory Gin?

    The banks haven't had enough 'interference' thanks to Brown, and that is precisely why we are in the current mess.
