A quick check of UK salaries through Google, using industry sources, found, in GBP:
Supermarket cashier 15,988
Cafe manager 18,321
Primary school teacher 28,700
IT project manager 44,000 plus bonus
Accountant 47,900 plus bonus
Air traffic controller £46,461 to £51,781, plus shift pay of £5,543
Surgeon 88,000 roughly
Prime Minister 149,440
All salaries were for the average person with a fair amount of experience. From this, those with skilled jobs, e.g. accountant upwards but also with responsibility for life and limb, e.g. air traffic controller, plus a surgeon, should be in the upper range.
On this basis, for a highly skilled job, with life and death responsibility, a round figure of £100,000 p.a. for 2017 is not out of order.
And I’d go further and say that no one really justifies much more than that. Perhaps a UK domestic international business CEO in a highly delicate business should double that at most.
Peter Hitchens lists:
Claudia Winkelman 500,000
Chris Evans 2,000,000
Frankly, that is insane, simply insane. Plus it’s our money. There is no way they should be getting any more than an actor earning around 30, 000 given the skill level. Add another ten for fame.
