ON page 5 of the Merc’s Budget report, in the Quick News column, there is a brief about the Guv …. which says that he is one public servant who will weather the storm …. He is getting a 12% salary increase a year, taking his pay and the cost of running his Vice-Regalness from $418,000 this financial year to $471,000 in 2009/10 and up to $527,000 in 1012/13.

Good god, poor bugger. And he has to endure regular Grange tasting from the cellar … or what’s left after Richard’s raids …

Of course, there’s not a brass razoo for an ethics commission … but really … don’t you worry about that …
