Auntie Beeb At It Again!

Posted by Boghound on July 19, 2009


WELL……………LET’S GET THIS STRAIGHT THEN………….It seems to be alright to spend thousands of the taxpayers money on pension advice for 30 of the Beeb’s top executives and also executives like ……Michael Carrington, the controller of CBeebies, the digital children’s channel, claimed £452.54 to moor a yacht in Cannes so he could host a party during an industry conference, and spent £4,589.40 on a business class flight to New York;

or…… Mark Bell, a commissioning editor for documentaries, spent £1,101.60 of public money on a flight to Malaysia when his family holiday was delayed by late changes to a programme…

or…Jane Tranter, the former controller of fiction, spent £1,772 on flowers for star presenters, actors and colleagues…….

or…..Roger Wright, the controller of Radio 3 and the director of the BBC Proms, used £3,493 of public funds on taxis in just one year…..

or….Alan Yentob, the corporation’s creative director, charged the licence fee payer almost £1,600 for an “executive Christmas dinner”

….But heaven help a radio presenter, like Sarah Kennedy, who has the audacity to praise the late Enoch Powell on her Wednesday show……She went on to describe Powell, who was sacked from the shadow cabinet by Ted Heath in 1968 for his “Rivers of Blood” speech about the dangers of mass immigration, as “the best prime minister this country never had”.

According to “one of Auntie’s lackey’s”…..the Beeb received 25 complaints…..WOW……This is out of thousands of listeners……How many complaints do they get from the public about over-spending and they just get ignored…….I WONDER WHY???????
