Consumer body not short of cash
With the cuts biting hard from Westminster, Northern Ireland consumers can take comfort from the fact that they have a generous advocate in the shape of the Consumer Council for Northern Ireland.
It would appear from a recent advertisement on the Northern Ireland Civil Service website that they are currently head-hunting for a chief executive (salary range £65,422-£78,275).
It really is most heartening to know that at least some folk in the public sector here are not too badly affected by the economic gloom and cuts. Trebles all round!
