Daily Mail, 18 April 2020, Royal Mail CEO pay (again)


Tory MP Robert Halfon said: ‘At a time when thousands of postal workers are heroically risking their own health and the health of their families to serve their communities, it seems astonishing that the head of Royal Mail is hiding away in a Swiss penthouse. This is truly a case of lions being led by a donkey.’

Cliff Weight, director of Sharesoc, which represents small shareholders, added: ‘Why should shareholders buy shares in a company run by a board and chief executive like this, who keep getting themselves into such a pickle?’
