I recognise myself as a grumpy old man, but this report from the Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) makes depressing reading even to me.

Usual rubbish churned out by a so called Think Tank, just highly paid jobs for the boys.

bumpkin The Institute for Public Policy Research is a registered charity that has won many awards for its work. It is a broadly left-wing organisation, and has been instrumental in initiating some pretty far-reaching policies, one of which was the London Congestion Charging scheme.

In the early 1990s it published the report on the Commission on Social Justice, and later influenced thinking on devolution, elected mayors, and public service reforms.

I think it's unfair to talk of its research as "Usual rubbish churned out by a so called Think Tank, just highly paid jobs for the boys."

In 2015, one person was paid between £90,000 and 100,000 - one was paid between £80,000 and £90,000 and three were paid between £60,000 and £70,000. Not a pittance, but less than many directors of small companies for instance.
