|NOT TAKING IT ON THE CHIN!|
So why did Nick Paget-Brown favour this nonentity over Moylan: after all, they both scored the same number of votes.....
The Dame can reveal that Nick used admirable guile to ensure that Moylan did not get under his feet.
Here's how he did it.....
He offered Danny Boys Planning or some similar Cabinet post...but on a condition. That condition was that he quit his £15,000 directorship of Tfl and the £75,000 a year job as aviation advisor.
Had he agreed it would have meant Danny Boys was short £60,000 a year.....so he didn't agree....and kept his £112,000 a year.
So you see, 'loons'-swivel eyed or not-it's all about filthy lucre.
Danny Boys is livid.
He never thought he would be given the Morton's Fork treatment....and particularly by N P-B!
