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.

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.

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.

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.

      Another thread crosser. I honestly couldn’t decide which of the obvious threads to stick it in - maybe people with more time on their hands can cross post? 
      Anyway, if you care about your health and make sure you aren’t a bloated sack of lard you are apparently benefiting from thin privilege.
      The self delusion levels here are enormous. Let’s flip it. So, do people going into most places to eat (where you are never really sure if you are getting healthy food even if it looks like it might be) benefitting from fat privilege? 
      The gulf between reality and what these morons want to be reality is getting so great you’d need a vessel capable of faster than light travel to cross it.
