Sir Christopher Meyer complains about how little he earns
All at The Steeple Times are unanimous in the view that Ed Miliband’s proposed mansion tax is flawed and unworkable but on ITV’s The Agenda on Monday, the former British ambassador to America turned rent-a-gob Sir Christopher Meyer showed himself for what he truly is whilst discussing it.
In telling Miliband “you’re going to screw me royally”, Meyer illustrated how disinterested he is in the ordinary man and that the only person he really cares about is himself. The “red socked fop” continued: “I’m the only person here who is a pensioner… I do not earn a great deal of money”.
Meyer’s champagne loving, “Chanel-clad” wife, Catherine, herself spoke similarly in 2011 when asked about the salary she receives for running a registered charity she founded named PACT. At the time, Lady Meyer told The Telegraph:
“We are doing a huge amount of work for very little salary… I used to work in the City and earned much more”.
What is important to note is that Sir Christopher and Lady Meyer live in a £3 million Chelsea townhouse, dine at smart restaurants and jet around the world with the likes of Barbara Taylor Bradford. For them to bleat about hardship is ridiculous. This couple should truly put a sock in it and for that reason we make Sir Christopher Meyer our Wally of the Week.
