As the Government today introduces the Bill it hopes will curb excessively generous remuneration packages, Cedric was basking in the sun on a farm in east London. She once faced the chop after being wrongly deemed to be barren but was rescued by the GMB union and used as a symbol of the protest against burgeoning boardroom wages.
Teigh O'Neill, who works at the Mudchute Park and Farm, said: "She's still going strong, although she's getting old and has a bit of arthritis. She's had three or four litters and one of her offspring is a little male piglet who is also called Cedric. I don't think she is worried by the Government's new plans."
The real Cedric Brown, 64, is also faring well. He retired from British Gas in 1996 but stayed as a consultant and was recently made non-executive chairman of Atlantic Caspian Resources, an oil company.Reuse content
