DanMarx Radios forbillede: BBC – en rotterede af bestikkelse og korruption

BBC spent £28m of licence-fee payers’ money gagging 500 staff

The BBC has used licence fee payers’ money to buy the silence of more than 500 staff with payouts of up to £500,000 each. The scale of the pay-outs led to accusations that the BBC was using the agreements to silence potential whistle blowers and victims of bullying or sexual harassment.

Stephen Barclay, a Conservative member of the Public Accounts Committee, said:

“These payments are at odds with the fundamental values of the BBC and a betrayal of the licence fee payer. They expect their hard-earned money to be spent on supporting creative talent and world class programmes, not on payments to silence people.”
