Steve Wright is pasta for the ear, I can't understand how anyone can get upset about him. His shtick is very effective, he makes himself so inoffensive he virtually disappears into the wallpaper. At worst he's mildly irritating, at best he's a comfort blanket for driving.
 
These are annual salaries from public funds. Most people will not realise those sums in a pension, even at the lower end of list.
I don't do wendy ball but what special talents does he bring to a sports show that any other person could?
Oh and that list is full of hideously white people.

I feel sorry for Lineker, the twot! His pay has reduced to £1.4 Million quid! How will he survive, unless he goes on the Walker's Crisp diet. :cool:
The BBC News website is reporting he has ‘agreed’ to a £400k pay cut. Very noble of him, but imho he’s still being overpaid by at least £1.3Million.

Im really struggling with how you can justify giving someone a £1.0m pay rise on top of the £360k (or whatever it was) they are already earning. There is something profoundly wrong with this award

I think she is worth every penny she gets paid - if it leads to the BBC Board being sacked and the Corporation made to act within it's Charter.
 
I'd say a top salary for one of the Meeja types should be capped at £250k. I could live with that and I think they could justify it.

I notice that there is a group not included in that list.
How do they pay for their hilarious left wing attack comedians.
Not BBC employees - they are employed by the Labour/Momentum Party ! ;)
