Not really defending big salaries but perhaps some context. He will be responsible for media output catering for 60 million in the UK and also selling programmes etc overseas for his years salary which is equivalent to a months salary for some footballers - whose output will have the greatest effect?
Then you have the likes of Jimmy Carr who will earn several times the DGs salary in a year - who affects the most people?
Then there is Bob Diamond who was earing Ã‚Â£18.2m per year.
