This Government vowed to avoid excessively high salaries. The top was measured as that of the Prime Minister i.e. about £145,000. Now we learn that Mr Deakin supremo at NATS will trouser more than a £million this year.
A stranger writes: "
I think you have spotted his responsibility - this piece of software was a fundamental component in the efficient operation of his enterprise - thus it was his responsibility to have ensured at the time of adoption that it was signed off as "fit for purpose" and that it was regularly maintained in that state. If this came down to some ordinary techie in an office or workshop then I'm sure that Deakin and his apologists would be quick to tell us how they have disciplined the person responsible, but given that this was a key enterprise "solution" it lands squarely on the man's plate. Will the man be big enough to admit it ? He should walk with minimal compensation."
I won't hold my breath. Is there a point when bosses are salaried and promoted beyond the zone of responsibility?
