Throw open the books...

There has been something of a ruckus in Italy over a government website.
There has been outrage in Italy after the outgoing government published every Italian's declared earnings and tax contributions on the internet.

Well, that should please darling Polly, eh?
Throw open the books so that we can see what everyone earns

Trust and social glue are corroded by pay secrecy and the greed-is-good culture. Transparency would change all that

Mind you, we're still waiting for that evil old bag to lead by example...

You'll be waiting a long time. A Trotskyist once told me that all should have equal pay whatever their job - except politicians who should have more because of their greater responsibilities!

No doubt left of Uncle Joe Polly would include herself in that exalted company.

If her gross income is less than £250,000 a year I'll eat the tiles off the roof.

My conservative guess would be at least £300,000 p.a.
