Francis 'Big Society' Maude is the Cabinet Minister who is slashing away at the pensions of civil servants who, on average, get around £5,600 p a, not enough to live on, after working full time for around 40 years for the government.
So, of course you would expect Mr Maude to be leading by example, wouldn't you.... Well, you'd be wrong. Mr Maude is not.
According to the Daily Mirror, old Maudie is collecting a massive pension pot of £731,000, at our expense. This will give him a massive £43,000 a year income when he retires. That's eight times the amount of the average government worker.
And he says that the current pensions are simply unsustainable.
Well his is!
I'm inclined to agree with Len McCluskey who called him and his minister pals shameless hypocrites.
