Former UK transport secretary Chris Grayling has been appointed as an advisor to Hutchison Ports. This is the operator of Felixstowe, which in turn is the biggest intermodal port in the UK. Despite a series of high-profile gaffes in office, Grayling has landed the 100,000 British pounds (110,000 euro) position, and will have to put in seven hours a week for the next year to earn his fee, according to parliamentary sources.
