Ex-council boss 'says' something he didn't say
|The Telegraph - 25 November 2011||
"I don't regard it as peanuts; I regard it as high pay"
The headline reads "£300,000 a year ex-council boss says his pay was 'peanuts'"
Quite clearly, he did not say that he thought his pay was 'peanuts', as the headline more than suggests. Rearranging of words for this article by Christopher Hope has pressed the idea that money is wasted through the public sector. The same headline regarding a role in the private sector is unimaginable in The Telegraph.
