    Top BBC Editor has quit over secret equality rules.

    Post by papa_umau on Mon 08 Jan 2018, 11:23 am

    A Top BBC Journalist has quit As China Editor And Accused The Corporation Of Having A "Secretive And Illegal" Pay Culture.

    In an explosive letter addressed to licence fee payers, which was leaked to BuzzFeed News, Carrie Gracie claimed the BBC was "breaking equality law".

    One of the BBC's most senior journalists has accused the corporation of presiding over a "secretive and illegal pay culture", and said the organisation's management was "breaking equality law" in how it paid female staff.

    In a bombshell letter addressed to BBC viewers and obtained by BuzzFeed News, Carrie Gracie made a series of sensational allegations, announcing that the "crisis" over a gender pay gap has led her to her resignation as BBC China editor.

    "With great regret, I have left my post as China editor to speak out publicly on a crisis of trust at the BBC," Gracie, who has been at the BBC for 30 years, wrote.

    "The BBC belongs to you, the licence fee payer. I believe you have a right to know that it is breaking equality law and resisting pressure for a fair and transparent pay structure."

    There you have it: If our own BBC cannot narrow the gender pay gap then who will ?

    This resignation will shock the BBC down to its core.

    I know that the top executives pay rates are top secret as the companies don't want everyone to know how much they earn for doing very little.

    It is good though that finally these barriers to fair pay are final getting broken down.

    The BBC have always been a secretive organisation as they do not want to reveal these kinds of secrets because of the risks associated with being perceived as too far left or too far right.

    At least one of their women employees has had the courage to stand up and be counted.

    Good for her.

    As a male feminist I have to agree with that.

    Shouldn't think so; Capita collect it so they must take a percentage. With the current furore over equality etc, Auntie Beeb seems to have no lack of funds. Makes me wonder if all is above board.

    Ok, maybe I am just a cynic, but I am suspicious of everything this government do in their connections with the private companies they are in cohort with.
