Southern Water
lan McAulay, CEO of Southern Water, has been handed a bonus of £550,900, despite the Company being fined a record £90m for “deliberately dumping billions of litres of sewage” into the sea between 2010 and 2015, reports BBC News. McAulay joined in 2017, and the firm says its record is improving. But in 2020, it remained the second-worst offender with 102 incidents per 10,000km of sewers. Chief Financial Officer Sebastiaan Boelen got a bonus of £290,000.

David Cameron
The former prime minister was paid more than $1m by the collapsed finance company Greensill Capital-more than $40,000 (£29,000) each day for the 25 days he had to put in every year, reports the Financial Times. That put him among Greensill’s highest earners, with the head of its American division, “a career banker with 25 years of experience”, being paid just $400,000. Other former politicians on the payroll included Australia’s former foreign minister Julie Bishop, who was paid the equivalent of more than $600,000 a year as an “adviser”.
