The real villains of the Global Financial Crisis: teachers

Headline radio news today: a London primary headteacher earned £276k. Imagine! Actually, read the news item linked above to find out that it wasn't just for being a headteacher; then decide whether you think he's earned his corn.

Of course, it's still only about two-thirds of what Fred Goodwin, slayer of the Royal Bank of Scotland, gets as a pension (early, to boot); and Fred would have had twice that if he'd got his way.

And it's not a patch on the bonuses at Goldman Sachs and other doers of "God's work".

Who sets the news agenda?

How much would Fred Goodwin have got if RBS had been placed into administration?

5 years, if there was any justice.
