Gordon Brown `accepted a pay cut for his successor`

Gordon Brown quietly organised a pay cut for David Cameron in his final days as the British Prime Minister.



London: Gordon Brown quietly organised
a pay cut for David Cameron in his final days as the British
Prime Minister, thus depriving his Conservative successor of
hundreds of thousands of pounds, a media report said.

On Brown`s orders, the Prime Minister`s remuneration
package was cut from 194,000 pounds to 150,000 pounds but this
was done with such stealth that no formal announcement was
ever made, `The Daily Telegraph` reported.

And, over the course of a five-year Parliament, the
personal loss to Cameron would be in excess of 250,000 pounds,
and this isn`t counting the pension benefits, the report said.

In fact, Cameron entered 10 Downing Street blissfully
unaware that he would, as British Prime Minister, be earning
only marginally more than he had as the Conservative leader of
the Opposition.

"This was pure Gordon. Quite prepared to make the
big sacrifices -- so long as it wasn`t him who actually had to
make them," a source was quoted as saying.
