Some of the public only complain about Linekers wage, because he has left leaning political views and the Brexit army see it as a victory that he is getting a pay cut.

Now hang on. The BBC is a publicly funded institution which gives Lineker a platform that keeps profile high enough that he can command lucrative commercial deals. He should be paying them.

The BBC are a media company that's uniquely funded, that shouldn't stop them paying for top talent.

Grant Shapps clamping down on graffiti on trains to encourage rail users. Ah yeah, thats what what puts people off the trains, its not the overcrowding, extortionate pricing, price rises every single fuckin year, ancient rolling stock and general unreliability. It's non existent graffiti.

On another planet these c***s.

Cleaning up graffiti is an overhead that eats into profit. If they sort that out all the other problems will simply vanish.

But that was never the point of the BBC. It nurtured and made top talent and then they would leave for ITV for the big bucks and BBC would just find the next promising thing and start again. It’s the quality of the programs that is more important ultimately than who hosts them in the main. Always has been.

What makes the quality of MOTD though? Isn’t it the host and the pundits?

What's the % of overall budget that wages take up in the BBC? These figures should be quoted in relation to that imo.

Reminds me of the confected EU lies where the UK's contributed amount sounds massive if you put it as a monetary figure so all the hard of thinking get excited, but when it's stated as a % of overall budget is miniscule and nobody would care.

Unrelated (sort of) but when BLM kicked off on certain radio stations there were various conversations had about lack of diversity in presenters and so on. Started listening to 6 Music again recently and Mary Ann Hobbs was on; was sat listening to her talk wondering how the f*** she managed to be a radio presenter, she sounds like the most boring librarian explaining library procedures to other librarians.

Anyway that got me thinking about other presenters on 6 Music and when you consider it's a stration for exploratory or independent music etc. the roster of presenters is the whitest, most middle class pile of s**** you'll ever come across. That's what should be getting tackled to some degree, what the f*** is Sean Keaveney adding to proceedings.
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

The highlights. The punditry has never been very good and the presenter job is a piece of p*ss. “Here’s Brighton vs Watford”, “So what did you think about that Alan?”.

6 music have plenty of non middle class presenters like Keavney, Lauren Laverne, Radcliffe and Maconie

Why should someone have to leave to go to ITV / BBC?  Also your forgetting that plenty shows also bring in £100's millions to BBC's commercial arm.

No. The original idea of highlights of all the footy to watch when you came home from the pub was the original factor along with the title music and the editing. Now that pubs are having to close at 10pm for the next few weeks it might be again :lol:

Chris Grayling just bagged himself a cool 100k a year job ‘advising ports’ for 7 hours work a week. All the meanwhile, he’s still a f***ing MP.

How is this sort of s*** allowed? Absolutely ridiculous.

I like Keaveny. I like the fact that that he doesn't have the 'required' voice for radio. Keaveny middle-class? Not with that accent.

Sack Attenborough and get some random in IMO.

He's had a stranglehold on the best nature programmes that's stifled the potential of many generations of presenters. They could get a sniff of the top, but then Attenborough just reaches down from the summit, plants his palm on their foreheads and says "get back down to Springwatch you young scrotes, I'm still the top dog for big budget productions"

Chris Packham and Michaela Strachan could have done so much with their careers if it wasn't for Attenborough

Digusting. What does that work out per week? Nearly £2000? Could probably earn himself an extra £36 if we weren't giving it to refugees. Take back control. Naplam the English Channel.

As if the company is paying that kind of money to see this c***s lips flap sagely for 7 hours a week man.
