Those who occupy the top positions in Britain's boardrooms have had rather a pleasant year. The BBC report that directors of Britain's leading companies saw their pay jump 37% over the past year.
Those in charge of firms listed on London's FTSE 100 index earned, for the first time, more than £1BN in total for the 12 months to the end of June.
The best place to be is, of course, a bank - Barclays Bank.
Now you know why banks need to keep their charges so high!
