There was a huge outcry when BBC entertainers, Jonathan Ross and Russell Brand, went too far with their overgrown-schoolboy humour.
I’ll tell you why: because Ross and Brand are paid huge salaries from taxpayers’ money.
A ridiculous pyramid structure rewards the very few at the very top with obscene amounts of money. Meanwhile many performers of equal talent get overlooked and underpaid.
The BBC turns out excellent programmes that – true to the corporation’s original mission – educate, inform and entertain. Yet over the last few years, their budgets have been slashed.
I drown my sorrows at the Sunshine cafe in Westward Ho! which has a Gaggia coffee machine, is open until 10pm and serves eggs are from a local farmer.
Think how many wonderful performers we could pay with the sums saved from Ross and Brand’s salaries!
Let’s hope the BBC has the guts to do so.
Do you think there’s fresh talent is out there?
