A thought just struck me. I wonder how much the taxpayer will be fleeced for to pay for a nice little severance deal for Damian McBride. Six months? A year?
Let me make a suggestion. He shouldn't be paid a penny beyond yesterday. If I was his boss I would have sacked him for gross misconduct. Perhaps he was allowed to 'resign himself' in order to get a better pay off.
How Brown handles this will be very illuminating indeed.
