Huge victory for women in the equal pay war

Recommended Posts

the So-Called BBC's Mishal Husein claims to have won "a huge victory for poor women everywhere" in getting her salary bumped up to 650K the same as Jon Humphries. That's a 400K increase. I don't suppose the 6000 or so poor women who go out to work to pay her salary via the license fee would agree.

Why not reduce the salaries of the male presenters.  Just sayin.  They wouldn't resign.  Interestingly Mishal gets paid a bomb every year to present the Law Society Annual Awards.

More the large number of poor women whove been jailed for not paying bbc license fee.

Bbc have jailed more mums than any 3rd world tinpot dictator.

As far as radio presenters go, id have a top end text to spee pch device reading out the scripts given to the presenters.

Tbh, £650k to present the news is absolutedly ludicrous. The only skill they really need is a good speaking voice and to be reasonably attractive. I honestly think £50k a year is ample for this type of skill set.

A pro text to speech application could do it.

You could easily replace them all and within a week people would have forgotten these 'superstar presenters' even existed.

Honestly, there must be so many Unemployed actors working in Starbucks that could do this job.

This story has done a lot to make me stop paying my licence. I bet many people struggle to pay their licence and then the So-Called BBC gives out obscene salaries to bog standard presenters.

ffs, the salary for this presenter is equal to 4500 TV licences. It's about 20 hours work on minimum wage to pay for the TV licence.

Mishal is on the radio, the only asset she had - being a reasonably attractive  gimmigrant, is completely wasted.

She makes quite a few grammatical mistakes in her speech. Standards have slipped at the So-Called BBC.

They managed that trick for some of their sports presenters

Spot on.

The So-Called BBC regularly had hundreds of women per year banged up for non payment of the TV license in the 1990s

The article should read a ' Huge Victory For Posh Oxbridge Educated Women' who will now earn the same as their equally Posh Male Oxbridge Colleagues all paid for by the peasantry of both sexes.

HMRC and the Licence Fee is all about extracting the maximum possible revenue out of the people  without provoking civil unrest.  The opium of the masses in 2017 is Strictly not religion.  I worked at Wakefield Magistrates' Court in the 80 s and 90 s.     Watching those poor women being sent down makes me a revolutionary to this day.

Have you any factual data on this. Ive tried backing up my rants to people about the amount of women they lock up but cant quite find any trustworthy  facts online.

How do the magistrates sleep at night? They must know that what they are doing is deeply morally wrong. I guess they are just following orders.

I don't only anecdotal.  I genuinely believe it is suppressed for obvious reasons.

According to a freedom of information request, 20 women and 19 men were jailed in 2015 for failing to pay their fine.

Quite an interesting angle on the story. If campaigners against the So-Called BBC can successfully brand the tax as an attack on women then bbc is in trouble.

It was pretty common in the 1990s.

In one year 292 women got jailed for non payment about a third of the total.  

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/courts-jail-845-for-not-paying-tv-licence-fines-1428836.html

It is no longer a criminal offence though presumably you can still be jailed for non payment of a JS or similar civil court order.

I would not mind the TV license if there was anything worth watching and the So-Called BBC did not spunk the money way on the likes of Lineker and Husain who will be earning more in a year than most of the population do in two decades. the So-Called BBC is the state broadcasting version of the civil service and employees like Husain should be paid similar salaries to Civil Servants. If they want private sector salaries they should work for the Commercial channels.

It was much higher decades ago.  In 2017 TPTB wouldn't dare.

Interesting the 2 blokes who wrote Yes Minister and Yes Prime Minister were employed by the so called BBC in the sixties and not the Civil Service.  The late great Anthony Jay stated it was no different to working at the Home Office.

Over staffed, wrongly staffed, unresponsive to change, expensive, etc.

You clearly missed her chairing the leadership debate. Many of us understand now why they put her behind a desk. Sometimes it's best not to see behind the curtain.

A newsreader gets paid more than the Prime Minister and President of the USA combined. Think about that. Then stop wasting your time watching telly, and stop wasting your money paying that corrupt organization their licence fee.

      A good news story for a change.  Whilst of course cancelling doesn't necessarily equate to a permanent opt out, as is the case for the moe discerning DOSBODders like @JoeDavola, @Harley and, well modesty prevents, some of these will be that and that looks like the obvious reason for the upward trend - in a world of on-demand streaming who needs a licence?
      So how many don't pay the television tax?
      Well the figure quoted below is 25.8m licences.
      Per the ONS there were 27.2m housholds in the UK in 2017 https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/birthsdeathsandmarriages/families/bulletins/familiesandhouseholds/2017
      The best estimate I can find for over 75 licence housholds, so currently free, is a fifth of licences.  But I'm not linking to it as it was in the guardian. Say 5.2m.
      So that adds up to:
      27.2m households 1.4m without a licence - 5% 5.2m with a free licence - 19% 20.6m with a paid for licence - 76% And they're losing them from that 76%; nobody with a free licence is likely to just give it up.
      It used to be that the ONS didn't even collect data on TV licence holding as so few didn't have them.
      The charming threatening letters I get from the TV licensing people used to quote the number of households with licences but have ceased to do that as the number is falling.
      5% withouta licence is significant and that figure is only going to go one way as the current crop of schoolkids rarerly watch TV.
      Hurrah!

      So, having lobbied for subsidized employment (tax credits etc) for years, thus helping to fill the country with government subsidized migrants, and threatened automation whenever this was questioned, they’re now going to do it anyway, as they always were going to. Just as all the employers of this type will do, as Aldi and Lidl take their market share. 
      So the UK might as well not have had the last 20 years of falsified high employment, automation was always going to come, and now  in addition to the millions of the uk’s own unskilled on the dole there will be all the newbies too.

      I have always loved radios - and would listen to the likes of Radio Luxembourg fading in and out on 208m back in the 70s.
      Today, I decided to listen to Radio 4 for an hour or so - as I hadn't done so in quite some time.
      From 3pm this afternoon, I listened to a half-hour edition of "Money Box" that was basically Brexit is bad, Brexit is bad, Brexit is bad - and then at half-three, the 30th anniversary edition of "All In The Mind" which was pretty much 30 minutes of Trump Is A Cunt, Trump Is A Cunt, Trump Is A Cunt..!!!
      We pay for this shit.
      The only bit of the whole hour''s broadcast that I believed was the time-signal at four o'clock.
      And I even then I checked that fucker against four independent sources...!!!
      This country of ours is so royally fucked - beyond numbers that I cannot even begin to fathom...
