The BBC has admitted spending the licence fee on lawyers to defend the reputation of its controversial human resources head.And this is effectively a tax on every household. The BBC are effectively putting two fingers up a licence fee payers, many of them increasingly strapped for cash.
Lucy Adams, who earns £320,000 a year, is taking legal action against a trade union which accused her of running a ‘dirty tricks’ campaign at the corporation.
She is set to leave the BBC in the spring after being accused of ‘corporate fraud and cronyism’ in the severance payoff scandal.
Forget the "settlement" which cocoons the BBC. The government should start by cutting the licence fee every time something like this emerges.
