Sure, they love to claim that it isn’t a TV Tax, it’s a Licence. That’s all tosh, that’s like calling the 12 weeks Holiday the MPs have a Recess. Utter bollox!
This is a very unscientific list of the pay some at the BBC get given who we all regard as simply talent-less. Nobody will agree with all our choices but, know what, we don’t care! It’s our list.
Gary Lineker, £1.75 million as a presenter. Huw Edwards, £550,000 for managing to read the news. Claudia Winkleman, £450,000 for – buggered if we know! Matt Baker, £450,000 for being the dullest man on TV.
Alex Jones, £400,000 for talking twaddle with Baker. Stephen Nolan, £400,000 for being obnoxious?
Sue Barker, £300,000 for being the dullest woman on TV. Danny Dyer, £200,000 for claiming he can act. Emilia Fox, £200,000 for playing the part of a plank for the last 15 years. Len Goodman, £200,000 for his ability to say, “Seven”. Laura Kuenssberg, £200,000 for speaking directly to Number 10 on a daily basis.
John Pienaar, £150,000 for trying to be as much like Kuenssburg as is humanly possible. Mel Giedroyc, £150,000 for trying to appear on every light-entertainment show. Adrian Chiles, £150,000 for crawling back to Radio 5 when his shit hit the fan.
So that’s our pick of the so called ‘talent’ at the BBC that nobody here would miss if they were all sacked at 12 o’clock tonight. Just how many of them really would get another job outside of the cosy club that is the BBC? We fancy it would be very, very few.
