How much would you pay for an hour of John SimpsonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s company, for Andrew NeilÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s ruminations on life and death or Andrew MarrÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s witty Westminster anecdotes?
Axegrinder found that all three, and many other well-known journalists, are signed up as after-dinner speakers with Gordon Poole, Ã¢â‚¬Å“the UKÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s premier talent agencyÃ¢â‚¬.
Marr, former BBC political editor and Start the Week presenter, tops the list with a fee in the Ã‚£15,000 to Ã‚£20,000 bracket, while world affairs editor Simpson Ã¢â‚¬’ Ã¢â‚¬Å“liberator of KabulÃ¢â‚¬ Ã¢â‚¬’ comes in at Ã‚£10,000 to Ã‚£15,000.
Former Sunday Times editor and Spectator publisher Andrew Neil would set you back a similar amount, as would disposed BBC director-general Greg Dyke.
Max Hastings and Jeff Randall both cost Ã‚£5,000 to Ã‚£10,000, as does BBC security correspondent Frank Gardner OBE.
In the bargain basement range, ITNÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Ã¢â‚¬Å“award-winningÃ¢â‚¬ science editor Lawrence McGinty costs Ã‚£3,000 to Ã‚£5,000.
But who is the cheapest journo on Gordon PooleÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s books? Who will get out of bed for something between Ã‚£1,000 and Ã‚£3,000? It is none other than the ToriesÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ favourite Guardian writer, Ms Polly Toynbee.
