TWO events last week highlighted the inequality that exists in this country, first the recommendation that senior judges be given an annual pay rise of almost PS60,000 even though the Tory Government has said in the past that no public employee should be paid more than the prime minister.
The prime minister earns PS150,402 per year, while the rise for judges would put them on PS240,000 per year.
Secondly the tax payer has stumped up PS2m for a Royal wedding of the ninth to the throne, Prince Eugenie, who is hardly known to anyone outside royal circles, not to mention saturated coverage on TV.
The Royal Family, like many at the top of the pile in this country, have not worked hard for their wealth, they inherited it.
