Re: Corbyn & the earnings limit

His mate Mcdonnell needs to tell him that the top 25% of earners pay 75% of income tax the Treasury receives and the top 1% about 33% before he starts meddling with salary caps. The top 3000 pay more tax than the bottom 9million workers.

Heard him on radio 4 at 6pm tonight resigning as Deputy First Minister. He sounded like a man not long for this world and the picture I have just seen of him on BBC News confirms that.
Hadn't noticed any news of him being ill before today. Has anyone else?

Ainsworth's job was only made permanent in November 2012 until then he was there in a temporary capacity;but I suppose the vast vast majority of managers are, by the length of their tenure, temporary. :lol: :lol: So does that make Sean 6th or 7th?
