Blatant hypocrisy and selfishness
The prime minister said the economic crisis meant the 2009-10 rises had to be lower than suggested by the Senior Salaries Review Body (SSRB).
However, all military personnel were awarded the recommended 2.8% rise.
Senior public sector staff should lead by showing "restraint," Mr Brown told MPs, who will get a pay rise of 2.33%.'
Words almost fail me. Telling others to show restraint while he feeds his lobby fodder.
