The gender gap is not the main issue in the row over BBC salaries.
We simply cannot afford waste of public resources on this scale.
It is like the waste on HS2.
The BBC no longer has credibility in seeking to lecture us on financial (NHS, university education, etc), moral and political issues.
There ought to be a publicly announced salary scale, as once used to be the case in universities.
Further, as Jacob Rees-Mogg might note, the BBC has spent absolutely nothing on televising and promoting cricket over the last twenty years, that is, England’s National Sport.
No wonder we are in disarray.
