BBC CAUGHT SECRETLY REHIRING NINE EXECUTIVE – Yesterday meebal.com published an article on how the taxman is failing to collect £35 billion in unpaid taxes – as a result senior officials are to be hauled over the coals by the Public Accounts Committee (PAC).
In the article meebal.com pointed out that the PAC was little more than an expensive pubic circus in which nothing is ever really achieved.
Also yesterday meebal.com published an article on how householders were being hunted like dogs by the BBC in order to ensure nobody evading its License Fee could escape prosecution.
What’s the point of all of this? This article clearly demonstrates that the PAC is not only a vast waste of public money but also clearly shows the contempt the BBC has for the licence fee payer.
Yes, the BBC was brought in for sever questioning by the PAC but it was clear from Lord Patten’s performance, and answers to public questions, that the BBC and its board has little time for the licence fee payer.
The article linked below provides an insight into the level of contempt; watch the video of Lord Patten answering questions and you will fully realise that the BBC and its board couldn’t give a fig about public opinion for their income is secured by Government legislation.
Is this proof enough? Well no but now it has been revealed that no less than NINE of those BBC executives that wer sacked and paid vast severance payoffs are now back working in the BBC on yet more inflated salaries; and yes the licence fee payer is footing the bill.
The Mail on Sunday reported that of the 91 staff being paid over £100,000 a year and sacked 9 have now been rehired either as freelancers or on short-term contracts.

You can guarantee that as a freelancer they will be reaping the benefits for it is widely accepted that freelance workers often charge far higher rates over that of full-time employment – in fact their pay will most likely rise above six figures. Is this incompetency or simply contempt?
Again Tory MP Steve Barclay, a member of PAC that questioned and critisised the BBC in the last round of public questioning, asked the BBC why it didn’t divulge this information during the PAC hearing.
No, the BBC hasn’t responded to Mr. Barclay’s questions and why should it? After all their income, as stated above, is secured under Government legislation; maybe it’s high time that the BBC was thrown to the commercial wolves – that is take away their Governmental protection and let them survive by competing against the other television and radio networks by ending their monopoly of being protected by the Government and funded by the taxpayer.
According to the Mail on Sunday they tried to get the BBC to provide an answer as to why nine executives were rehired, however the BBC refused an explanation – yes it really does look more like a case of complete and utter contempt rather than simple incompetency.
