Now let's tackle footballers' pay
It seems to me that Stephen Hester is doing a really good job in salvaging the wreck of RBS.
Presumably he accepted the task on a contract which included bonus payments agreed with the shareholders.
Yet our chorus of political leaders out-chirped each other in demanding that he should surrender them.
Might we, therefore, hope that in due course these brave political leader chaps will demand similar concessions from the second-rate Premier League footballers who would barely spit on the pitch for the meagre amount Hester has given up?
