MG Rover chiefs' £31m bonanza

From The Grauniad
"The four men who saved MG Rover and the chief executive they brought in to rescue the stricken car company have made £31m out of the business they bought for £10.
"Their combined salaries and benefits plus the rewards of a complex series of financial transactions mean the five have profited handsomely, even though one of Britain's most famous brand names is haemorrhaging losses and experiencing a dramatic slump in sales. "

I have had the misfortune to work for some manner of these scum (a company that started off as the IT and OR (Operational Research, the bit that I was in) groups of BL as it was then) and I am not surprised by this. Indeed I would be surprised if they hadn't.
