Apologies to People's Heroine Abbott.
Prompted by mr oldrightie I checked Abbott's entry in the Register of Members' Bungs; the BBC only paid her approximately three hours @ £300 for her hourly appearances on This Week probably an hour in make up, an hour getting pissed and an hour on the sofa, not quite a grand an hour, then. ITV, by contrast, paid her the whole grand for her appearance on Cash In The Fucking Attic. Got her finger right on the pulse of urban deprivation has Comrade Abbott. Fuckpig.
