From the Daily Mail: EastEnders MEP pays gay lover £30,000 to be his secretary

From the Times: Wives of Tory MEPs earn up to £60,000 as secretaries

One angle is that all the MEPs are milking the system (and who can actually blame them) – or another is to compare the salary paid to wives vs “civil partner” and claim that this is an example of homophobia etc.

I’ll expect the ubiquitous Peter Tatchell to complain about it shortly.

On a more serious note – I wonder why one secretary earns twice as much as the other.
