And while we're on about executive salary comparisons, I'm grateful to the Press Gazette for details of Ashley Highfield's latest year as CEO of Johnston Press. Highfield's package for 2014 was £404k basic salary, £11k benefits, £483k annual bonus, £645k long-term incentives and £106k in pension enhancements - £1.65m for the year.  Next year his basic goes up to £430k - a 7.5% rise.

Ashley left the role of Director of Future Media and Technology at the BBC in 2007, taking home that year a mere £466k. The man representing techie stuff at Executive level for Auntie is polymath James Purnell, who's on Twitter and everything, and paid a paltry £295k.
