Bosses of charities handed millions in British foreign aid to fight poverty in poor nations are creaming off huge six-figure salaries and hefty bonuses, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.
Beneficiaries include former Labour Foreign Secretary David Miliband, who takes home £530,922 as president of the US-based International Rescue Committee, which has been given £3.6 million British aid. He has been complaining that a shortage of cash hinders his group from helping people in need.
Save The Children is one of the charities closest to DFID. Its new head is Helle Thorning-Schmidt, 50, the former Danish prime minister, who has been nicknamed ‘Gucci Helle’ because of her expensive tastes. Married to Labour MP Stephen Kinnock, she receives a pay and pension package worth £246,750 a year.
Behøver jeg nævne, at både Miliband og HTS er socialdemokrater?
