You'd be hard-pushed to find someone who thinks that Quango bosses should be paid more - except perhaps at a meeting of Quango bosses. The government has recognised that most of us think a good chunk of them are overpaid and achieving very little, so they promised to axe the useless ones and freeze public sector pay.

However, they didn't reckon on just how clever and efficient these bosses can be when it comes to bumping up their pay packets on the sly.
