The rotating entryway in Whitehall in which previous pastors and best positioning government workers take lucrative private-area employments has been turning speedier than at any other time.

Somewhere in the range of 52 ex-priests increased authority endorsement for parts with enormous business, foundations or open talking offices in 2016/17 – up from only 33 the prior year.
