  1. As I understand it they got the bonus in lieu of a pay rise, negotiated under a government which was unwilling to be seen to be raising their pay at the time.

    It was a clear case of:

    "Mr Treasury wallah, look into my eyes, look into the eyes, not around the eyes, look into the're under. No it's not a pay rise and we're not raising their pay whilst you're trashing the hospitals, you will never consider it to be a pay rise and if asked you will wet your pants, dance slowly around the room on one leg and start singing the smurf song....3....2....1..CLICK you are back in the room!"
  2. As opposed to you bloke's pensions?
  3. Plus paying it as a "bonus" rather than a pay rise means it isn't pensionable and doesn't have to be paid every year in the future thus saving money
