It has come to light today, that Mr Brown in the year 2011\12, was paid £114.998.17p, to fulfil the role of a former Prmie Minister.  Who says now about bonus payments for bankers.......... :wink:

Put another way: That's one fifth of a wifi, one seventh of a Radio Rod Big Spend Weekend or one half of one year of Gavin Jones  ;D

Or two speeches Gordon Brown is paid an average of £50,000 per speech, it is all in his latest entry in the Commons' register of interests. He gives pro bono speeches to charities etc the profits from his book towards the crash (over £70,000) have been given to charity.

Gordon and Sarah Brown's office state that all monies paid to them go into their office to support the public work they do. The money is used to pay for staff salaries and running costs of £350,000 a year.

It's all recorded and declared, but the same applies in Swindon to MPs who are away from the commons. Robert Buckland MP works and declares payments he receives in his register of interests.
