After years in the job Pootin won't move on. Why?.... Simple answer.. it's £130,000 a year.
Prior to hitting the local government jackpot, Pootin struggled to make end meet at his-now defunct- import/export business. Situated in an unsalubrious basement under the Conservative Association offices in Chelsea Manor Street, Pooter and his partner sold odds, sods and cigs into West Africa: hardly, a prestige head office for the multinational trading concern he boasted of running!
But in the Sunday Times today we find that Pooter is not alone.
The Dame's old friend, Cllr Danny 'Boys'Moylan is featured in an article headlined, " Boris's Top Team Laps Up The Good Life"
Danny 'Boys', who has a very pretty pad in Thailand, is shown to be earning £121,000 a year doing four days a week as deputy chairman of Transport for London.

Oh, yes she forgot...he is also a member of the London Waste and Recycling Board.
Some suggest Moylan might try try to return as RBK&C leader-should Boris fall under one of his buses' or fail to beat Ken. That would be the stuff of nightmares.
Moylan is a bullyboy. RBK&C councillors should remember that the Cockell administration has reduced the Council to the status of a laughing stock. Replacing him with Moylan would do great and further damage.
Local Government guru and LSE professor, Tony Travers, suggests that these sorts of job tripling are not good practice, if they add up to a full time job.That appears to be the case with Mr Moylan.
