BBC mandarin’s outburst was arrogant and ignorant
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.
