I know! All this criticism about why he didn't give 50% of this salary to a UK charity! As if he's never given a penny to any charitable cause here!
As I said earlier, I do think the announcement of this donation could have been handled better from a PR perspective - but the bile that it's generated is truly in indirect proportion to the gesture.
True - the announcement might not have been made at all; that would have been handling it very well.
The 'bile' - as you call it - is generated by the announcement, not the gesture. Surely that's crystal clear at this stage?
