EXCLUSIVE: Piggy Pendry's Pay


Remember when we covered the story on Lord Pendry receiving Wimbledon Tickets from Imperial Tobacco? We thought it conflicted with the statements that smoking was unacceptable from the high profile sporting bodies which Lord Pendry declared on his register of interests which he holds senior positions for.

One body which the former shadow sports minister declared working for was Tameside Sports Trust which is run by Tameside MBC. The Mafia can exclusively reveal that the Piggy Peer is paid £10,000 per year from council tax payers coffers for attending one meeting, once a month lasting one hour. This is equivalent to £833 per hour before tax.

If Pendry was to have a full time job doing the standard 37.5 hours a week then he would earn £1,624,350.00 a year. This is more than what the "disgraced" Sir Fred Goodwin earned at the Royal Bank of Scotland who took home a reported £1.29m basic salary.

Nice work if you can get it...
