London Mayor on £1/4m “chickenfeed”

So Boris gets paid £250000 pa chickenfeed from the Daily Telegraph for his column, which he knocks up in about an hour on a Sunday Morning. Remember he’s a trained journalist and was their main leader writer for many years,  the Telegraph obviously think he’s worth it, otherwise they wouldn’t offer him that much. Talking just in terms of his Telegraph column, and not his of his Mayoral performance, one must recognise that comedy and entertainment don’t come cheap these days.

Over at Liberal Conspiracy Sunny Hundal emits the normal lefty cry of foul, doing two jobs at once, cannot get one of them right, etc. etc. as they display the normal tendency to bleat in a jealous class based envy fest.

It’s a free market Sunny, the price is agreed between the seller and the buyer, and he does it in his spare time. Chickenfeed – what’s the beef man?
