PEOPLE often ask how much you would have to be paid to step into the shoes of a member of the royal family and forever live in the public eye.
But what figure would you want to be her representative in Jersey?
The post of Lieutenant-Governor currently held by former chief of military intelligence Lieutenant-General Andrew Ridgway is being advertised in the national media with a salary of £105,294.
The advert, which was published in the Sunday Times at the weekend, states that candidates for the post, which is due to become vacant in September 2011, must have had a ‘distinguished military service background at the highest level’.
