No wonder he cleared off from RBKC...much better pickings here!
The only nonsense here is the claim that it will put Moylan on a collision course with those fearless fighters against double jobbing and ludicrous allowances, Pickles and Shapps: we know those two will huff and puff and do nothing.
Boris Johnson has doubled the wage of a key ally to make him the highest paid councillor in the country. Daniel Moylan’s taxpayer-funded salary has jumped £55,000 to £131,597 after Boris approved a gigantic increase in his pay packet as London’s three-day-weekend deputy transport chief.
Moylan’s pay bump sees him beat the previous record held by another of Boris Johnson’s cronies, Steve O’Connell, according to a leaked letter seen by the Sunday Mirror. While former banker O’Connell defended his £118,511 by claiming “I’m worth it”, his package is trumped by Moylan’s three jobs:
- £115,000 for four days a week at TfL (doubled from £60,000)
- £10,597 as a councillor in Kensington and Chelsea
- £6,000 as member of London Waste and Recycling Board
