I only saw the last few minutes of BBC's Panorama programme. Just enough time to catch the breathtaking arrogance of a BBC spokesperson, Lucy Adams, defending her own salary.  She was said to earn more than the Chief of the Defence Staffs. Did she think her job was more worthwhile than the defence of the realm, she was asked. Neatly sidestepping the issue, she merely said that she couldn't comment on the Chief's pay.
Perhaps she couldn't, but I can comment on hers. It's a disgrace that the BBC pays her and others like her so much from the license fee payers money. There simply has to be someone in the UK who can do as good a job for a quarter of what she earns or less. There are 131 people working for the BBC who earn more than £100000 per annum. One or more of them is responsible for hiring the likes of that, in my opinion, talentless person Chris Evans at a huge cost and that even more highly rewarded waste of time, Jonathon Ross. For foisting these oafs on the general public, hirers at the Beeb get their own huge rewards; far in excess of what normal people can expect to earn and way above what they deserve.
The BBC needs to be better regulated. Can I have the job? It won't cost an arm and a leg.
