There's a report out today that shows that the claims of the millionaire cabinet that everyone has to suffer in the current economic climate is a pile of lying hogwash.
FTSE 100 director's earnings rose by almost half last year
I won't repeat the report here but suggest that you read it.
The question to be asked is how to respond to this outrage. Well in the pages of this blog I have, where available, included the details of the salaries and remuneration packages of the Procuts 35 who said that public sector workers, including their own customers, should be sacked to pay for excesses of the banks.
Well I intend to update and re-publish details of the earnings of these people just to show that when they said that cuts had to be made they did not mean to their own salaries, the hypocritical swine that they are.
I've been busy on other projects most of this year but winter is setting in and now I have time to hunt these people down and expose their greed and I will delight in doing so. Stay tuned for updates.
Here are the latest figures for the annual earnings of the Procuts 35. Those with nothing next to them yet will be added shortly.

The rest of us, to borrow a slogan from the Occupy protests, are the 99% and these people are not representative of us nor act in out interests. Please boycott their businesses. Don't fund your own oppression.
The source for most of these figures is businessweek.com and are from various dates within 2011 unless stated, others are gleamed from news stories. As you can see it's not possible with ease to discover what all these people earn. If you know of any other sources where I can check or double-check these figures I'd be glad to hear about them.
