Controversial Brexit civil servant Oliver Robbins handed big bonus by PM

THERESA May awarded her controversial civil service Brexit guru Oliver Robbins an“unbelievable” £20,000 performance related bonus last year.

Downing Street defended the lump sum saying it had been subject to a “robust process” by an independent committee, but admitted the PM had signed off the perk on top of his £110,000 salary.

Last night Tory MP Conor Burns said it was “unbelievable”, while Andrew Bridgen said it should have been paid by Brussels.
