Yet more government waste

Many newspapers today have reported that Labour ministers who lost their seats at the election will be receiving GBP200,000 'golden goodbyes' from the Government.

Speaking to the Daily Star and the Daily Express, TPA Chief Executive Matthew Elliott said: "The big pay-offs to former Ministers are a disgraceful waste of taxpayers' money. When the voters said 'You're fired!' they certainly did not expect Ministers to have a golden goodbye and a gold-plated pension."
