The Independent reports that Mr Torres will be on a salary of £175,000 per week. Imagine that; I fear I cannot. But it amounts to over £9 million annually. No doubt he will have to pay lots of income tax (although I understand that special arrangements can be made with the aid of a good accountant) but even so. Thus the muddied oafs elevate themselves to the status of bankers.
It makes Mr Carroll's new salary of a mere £70,000 per week look relatively modest.
