Failed Labour leader cashes in

Neil and Glenys Kinnock received more than £10million in pay, allowances and pension entitlements during their time working at the European Union in Brussels. They had joint wages amounting to over £2.5million; allowances for Lady Kinnock’s staff and office costs of £3million; a housing allowance that allowed them both to claim accommodation costs although, as a married couple, they lived in the same house in the Belgian capital. Their son Stephen and daughter Rachel also benefitted the Brussels gravy train. Finally they have publicly-funded pensions, worth £4.5million, allowing them to retire on almost £200,000 a year. Added to their valuable property portfolio, it is an astonishing achievement for a failed party leader.
