Top salaries for top people?

 

Sir, – Why on earth do we keep hearing that we have to pay huge salaries to attract the “top” people? If the “top” people in this country are anything to go by, fat salaries are not a protection against incompetence and rampant self-interest. As for the constant veneration of the higher echelons of the private sector, how many inquiries have we had now? How many scandals involving charities? How many convictions? – Yours, etc,
