Gary Lineker
Last year - £1.75 million from BBC = £33k pw
Taking 23% cut this year = £1,347,500 = £25,913 pw

To talk about football for 1.5 hrs for 36 wks of the year
Free from pressure.
Not to lead and ensue a company survives, but to chat.

What does doing important humanitarian work have to do with it being ok for the licence payer to pay him £26k a week for 1.5 hrs work, 36 weeks of the year? the 2 are completely unrelated

Not sure what the aim of this article is, but I would suggest that the BBC look within before raining too much criticism on others.
For a publicly funded organisation to be paying massive salaries to executives and 'stars' is a disgrace - especially when so many who were previously exempt from paying a license fee are now expected to pay to fund these inflated salaries.
Glasshouses, stones.Anyone?

Not to mention the 258million over 5 yrs the EU gave to the BBC!

Totally agree, but this does deflect from that fact. I expect being a service broadcaster that will be the next story. Reading out loud person get's paid 10 times more than teachers.

I have no issue with a high salary in return for heavy responsibility and good results. But many of these salaries are now simply obscene and completely unjustifiable.

This doesn't make any sense. The Conservative ideology is to stay out of business. So the Conservatives wouldn't look after the golden goose, they would let it fend for themselves.

Big business makes lots of profit and execs pay themselves big out of it, sometimes putting them in offshore tax havens.

Then they own media outlets, lobby politicians into acting for their interests and sell stories that tell us what we should be outraged by, so we don’t get outraged at the real problems in society they cause.

The result: they get richer while we fight over lesser issues.

The right wing media give a lot of misinformation about the public sector.
I'm a nurse of 30 years standing, if I become an NHS manager I would earn 1K more for the first 2 years, then 2k more.
My mother in law who reads the Daily Mailed guessed my pension correctly. Oh, no she didn't, she put an extra zero on the end!!

I wouldn't mind so much if it was performance related pay, company value increases by £10 million, CEO gets paid £1 million fair enough. But so many of these high flying positions are jobs for the boys where millions are paid to run the company into the ground while the normal workers pay the price.

So you are in favour of lower wages for everyone? This is exactly the problem with capitalism and why jobs are being exported to China and why we no longer manufacture anything.

What is your solution for an over supply of workers? Genocide ?

Because they are the "entrepreneurs" and "wealth creators" who generate the wealth to pay for us all.
Contrast them with the sponging parasites in the public sector like the the NHS and social services!!! The useless and feckless drivers of buses and hole diggers don't "create the wealth".
Lets get out there and clap for the CEO entrepreneurs!!
