I want Robin Evans’ job not because I think I could do it any better, I wouldn’t know until I tried, but because I could put at least half a million in to the maintenance budget. I could do that because I would be embarrassed taking £556,000 in salary, I would settle for £56,000. I wouldn’t really need that much but it would allow me the opportunity to go out and about and meet boaters and buy them lunch and tell them what’s happening. And of course no one on the staff would be allowed to earn more than me, that’s another couple of million in the pot.
