BBC man­darin’s out­burst was ar­ro­gant and ig­no­rant

Daily Express - - LETTERS BEACHCOMBE­R -

SO Rod McKen­zie, ed­i­tor of Ra­dio 1’s News­beat, thinks that com­plaints about the be­hav­iour of Ross and Brand are syn­thetic and made out of salary envy (“£16,000 a day for Ross to do noth­ing”, Oc­to­ber 30).

It seems that se­nior em­ploy­ees at the BBC have lost sight of the fact that they work for the pub­lic and their salaries are paid out of our li­cence fees.

What other or­gan­i­sa­tion could, at the same time, ap­pear to con­done the dis­gust­ing an­tics of two em­ploy­ees and in­sult its cus­tomers by im­ply­ing that they were mo­ti­vated in com­plain­ing only by jeal­ousy?

Any pri­vate or­gan­i­sa­tion would im­me­di­ately dis­miss the said ex­ec­u­tive or ex­pect to be out of busi­ness very quickly – but then as this is the BBC, I’m not hold­ing my breath.
