    Incredibly she's being portrayed as a victim, despite earning £500k a year for presenting.

    Meanwhile the average worker e.g. gig economy workers get no sick pay, **** pay, next to no pension provision, real wages barely increasing...yet the headlines are focussed on these high earning women being discriminated against.

    I feel sorry for Gary Lineker, he earns £1.8m a year, but Chris Evans earns £2.2m a year. That's discrimination against Linkeker.

    Former creative director Alan Yentob, earning £200k a year for a little known arts show, whilst he sits on a handsome pension of the same amount - that's £400k a year cost to the licence fee payer for this fella.

    I used to defend the BBC. Not no more. They're gangsters.

    Completely agree, I think they should all be paid less and focus more on the little people - just like the disparity between university chancellors and the lowest paid staff.

    Reminds me of Vorderman and what happened with her:

    It's just silly
