Spads rake it in

Below are the current pay grades for 'special advisers', released by Number 10 today.

Spads, as they are known, are employed by ministers and taxpayer funded – but have a political role. Very grey area.

You'll notice that even some of those in pay-band two have a higher wage than your average MP – who will take home about £65,000 before expenses.

Shows where the power in Westminster lies perhaps.

All Party donors to Labour, as well.

£142G! That's four teachers worth of bullshit.
