ANYONE who runs a large business or organisation is obviously incredible, experts have confirmed.
As it emerged that even the head of the Open University gets £400,000 a year, researchers said it was because bosses are so much better than they used to be.
Professor Henry Brubaker, director of the Institute for Studies, said: “If you go back 30 years there wasn’t such a massive disparity in pay levels because all the bosses were utter morons who hadn’t even been on a media training day.
“For example, whoever was running the Royal Bank of Scotland in the early 1980s was obviously shit at it. Which is why it went bankrupt and caused a massive recession in 1989.
“Or maybe it didn’t, I’ve really no idea.”
Professor Brubaker, who is paid £550,000 a year, added: “I know from my own experience that I’m fantastic. The Institute’s board members are all talented and experienced enough to agree with me, which is why they get paid fifty grand a year for one day a week.
“And I know for a fact that the Studying Institute would snap me up in a second, because those board members get fifty grand too.
“We’re all just so amazing.”
