A Tory minister has broken their silence over their opposition to the pay cap – unfortunately just not the one that matters.
In an interview on the BBC’s Daily Politics Show today, Jo Johnson declared: “We’re not setting a pay cap.”
Sadly he was sticking up for university vice-chancellors making up to £350,000 a year, rather than millions of nurses, firefighters, teachers and many other public sector workers (including his own civil servants) who haven’t had a proper pay rise since the Tories took power.

If the Tories can’t countenance a pay cap for uni bosses, then they shouldn’t for hardworking public servants.
You don’t need a PhD in PPE from Oxford to work that out…
