What a bloody disgrace... Chris Evans 2.2 million a year for being sacked from Radio 1 and failing miserably at presenting Top Gear.. Jeremy Vine 750K for bumbling and croaking along! most of his stand in's are better than him!
Did you hear him cringe when the Welsh Miner asked him if his hand shook on pay day?... Evil or Very Mad

Absolutely Santa

The Vine Show is rapidly becoming a joke with the idiotic subjects discussed these days and if Vine had an ounce of credibility he'd be telling the producers to get their act together otherwise he's moving on

Now we all know why he doesn't and that former Welsh miner who called in yesterday got it absolutely spot on

As for the rest of these overpaid 'celebrities' what really annoys me is the fact that the published figures do not reflect total income as people like Norton have their own production companies which are paid by the BBC -or more accurately us poor sods who fund the licence fee - and how can someone like David Dimbleby not even appear in the list? - he's obviously got a great team of accountants advising him Rolling Eyes

When asked about his salary outside Wogan House,Vine said "The BBC is really hurting today" What on earth is that suppose to mean??? Evil or Very Mad

And what about poor Ken???? Miles behind Chris Evans. Vanessa Feltz, earns more than him! How can that be right?

I am so angry about this farce.. and then got even more angry as the BBC news (imo) made it more about the equality between the male and female presenters, suggesting the female salary may have to be raised to be equal! How about lowering the obscenely high male salary?? I've always had a problem with Evans, being a multi millionaire being paid by the BBC to produce plain waffle in my opinion, but Vine on that kind of money, interviewing and warbling with sympathetic noises for people who are financially desperate makes me cringe. ..... and don't even mention Gary Lineker!!!!

That would seem (to me) to be the right and proper thing to do,Santa, but if this article is to be believed they are going to go in the opposite direction.

BBC attempting to woo Newsnight presenter Emily Maitlis with 'increased pay offer'
The presenter at the centre of the BBC gender pay gap row has been out of contract for weeks and the Corporation is determined not to lose her

I had to look her up because I didn't recognise the name... I would have sacked her weeks ago! There was a suggestion recently that she may have been too rude to Andrea Leadsom when interviewed about the Brexit plans... Andrea asked interviewers and the media "to be a bit more patriotic"... yes, she was rude.
I've been saying this for weeks now that certain interviewers or reporters show little or no respect for politicians or the PM herself. I'd direct my criticism toward Laura Kuenssberg too.. to see her and others yelling across Downing Street and asking frankly ridiculous questions like some school playground is pathetic.
I'd like to see a little more patriotism and plain common sense too! the European deal makers must be laughing at us.
Even Victoria Derbyshire was accused of sensationalism over Grenfell Tower this morning... Oh for the old days of polite debate.

The problem here is that we are faced with headlines yet again. There is no drilling down into detail that explains differences. For example was not Alex Jones on maternity leave for part of the period? Was there not a referendum which would have inflated some wages and what about the Olympics etc. I am still not defending Shouty though

I don't really mind what they're paid (especially when you compare to the commercial sector and Ant n Dec get 28m!) but it's a shame the money in radio isn't spread around a bit more so we get more interesting presenters, shows and music.

Although it does strike me that TV gets all the coverage but the highest-paid talent are nearly all on the radio. Time for radio to get a bit more general respect, I think.

It's not unpatriotic to expect our Brexit negotiators to have some sort of idea of what they're doing, yet they show no signs of this.

If only the PM would actually answer questions and spare us all this game!

Everyone's laughing at us. Our Government are showing incompetence at every level.

I just think it's bad manners to constantly interrupt politicians before they've had a chance to answer and more importantly, it's that horrible attitude these two seem to have... such a high and mighty stance... just plain rude imo.

I don't expect our deal makers to make a decision in No.10 and then feel obliged to appear on the TV telling everybody about their plans that evening.

Whether people like it or not, this is a game of Poker and yes, people will be pawns in the game.. it's a nasty world away from TV.
We want the best for our country - not the EU, our country.. and the EU will stall proceedings and give us the worst deal they can in the hope we'll bottle it and stay in. The Liberals are falling over themselves to secure another referendum after the deals are on the table. The EU bosses must love them!

Old school I am, and I think the potential deals should be discreet, not for joe public to moan about the next day. The Politicians want the best for our country, why would they want anything else?
The EU bosses always seem to crumble after all the bluster, and I think the early "No deal is better than a bad deal" was the right thing to say to them.

Once the decision to leave was made, and a few months were allowed for all the moaners to get it off their chests, there should have been a strong united stance against the EU bully boy tactics and a cross party team set up to iron out the best possible approach to secure the best deal for the UK.

and while I'm at it.... Very Happy .. I completely disagree with the "jump on the bandwagon" media types that criticised Theresa May for not appearing on the sleazy US style "answer the question" programmes....

I watched many of the political "debate" programmes which quickly descended into a brawling shouting match, over talking to point of being unbearable.

I applaud Mrs May for declining to take part. She is not of that stock.. unlike Corbin and his cronies. It was a civilised choice to make.

If you take it to extremes, can you imagine the Queen or Prince Charles shouting and being rude to make their point? certainly not. Rolling Eyes

Again completely agree Santa - sadly the BBC is totally biased when it comes to coverage of Brexit - but recently their liberal elite credentials have been totally undermined when we all discovered how they were blatently discriminating against members of the female gender when it comes to fair and equal pay

I'm afraid I have had no confidence in them for some time - they are equally as bad as the disgusting Murdoch empire but just in a different way
Sad

I cannot believe that the presenters and news readers on the BBC are paid such high amounts of money. Let alone women being paid less
I object to Evans shouting in the morning and needing so many supporters on the show to back him up.
As for the warbling wasp Vine......he gets so worked up when questioning people he cannot be understood
Vine, was truly put in his place by the phone call from the coal minor.

What makes me more frustrated is that I have to pay a yearly fee for all their rubbish... Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

As pointed out here, many of these people could earn a lot more from other broadcasters, eg ITV or Sky. However, the sums involved do seem unjustified.

I like to see Luvvie Lineker's name mentioned here. Whilst he was a great player and is a very good MOTD presenter, I can't stand his moralising on social issues, eg tweeting about how we should let more Syrian refugees in, and joining anti austerity demos. Perhaps with his salary he could put up a few 'refugees'.

So today, from what I heard in between jobs, I learned how easy it is to steal a Moped and how to do it, and how to obtain enough Cyanide from Cherry stones to be able to kill somebody... wonderful stuff.

Yes - would have been very handy if you were a suicidal mod in the sixties - mind you do remember what was said about the BBC all those years ago - one of its remits is to educate - apparently in crime these days -what a waste of space and of licence fee payers money the JV Show sadly is these days Mad Mad

Paid all that money and according to this article,about a leaked email, station editor David Robey doesn't rate her that highly..

Nice one Becky. I would agree with him - not that I've heard more than the odd few minutes. Her "style" is well suited to phone-ins (she also has one of those every weekday on BBC Radio London), but not a regular music based programme.

As I may have mentioned before I met her in Cream Night Club in Belfast back in 2003

I can honestly say she was one of the most obnoxious egotistical 'bitches' I have ever come across and her radio style for me is evidence of that - albeit sanitised up to a point

Does anyone notice how many times she addresses her audience as 'lovely listeners' which for me is the ultimate in patronising slogans Evil or Very Mad
