How much do the people who produce this sort of stuff get paid? Probably at least £70k. And yet they can't compose an unambiguous sentence. Who does the "he" refer to? Neil or Gani?

As sincerity in apology goes, the BBC is without peer, issuing template statements not from the perp but anonymous and/or corporate waffle from 'somebody' with no possibility of exchange.
