George Osborne’S Top Adviser Receives 18% Pay Rise

George Osborne’s most senior adviser has received an 18% pay rise in the last year even though he has been one of the chief architects of a multi-year public sector pay freeze.

The salary of Rupert Harrison, Osborne’s long-term special adviser, rose from £80,000 to £95,000 over the last year, according to the latest list of salaries for special advisers released on Thursday.

It appears he received the increase because the chancellor appointed him to the Treasury Council of Economic Advisers, a body initially set up by the then Labour chancellor Gordon Brown.

Osborne appointed Harrison and three others advisers to the council. It was thought that the institution, an idea imported from America by Brown, had become defunct, but it appears to have been revived by Osborne.

Jobs for the boys, what a nice increase he got. Although as he's probably living in London it's barely living wage....

Rupert Harrison may as well be the chancellor. Just look how the media react after each budget, the first thing they do is talk to Rupert, not George.
