Money grows on trees at the BBC

November 24, 2016 22:51

There's an excellent clip on Comment Central of an interview given in defence of the Speaker by George Foulkes.

I have to say, however, that I am far more interested in the revelation by the presenter that she is paid £92,000 a year. 

Her name is Carrie Gracie. Until now, I had never heard of her, or - as far as I can remember - seen her. She is in every way I can judge, entirely unremarkable.  And yet this woman takes home £92,000 of our money.

If Ms Gracie is paid this, how many more nonentities at the BBC do we reward with such sums? It's breathtaking the largesse available.
