Pop open the warm Prosecco! Emily Maitlis is getting a pay rise!
According to the Daily Mail, Our Emily is going to get at least £50,000 a year more, putting her on an equal footing with Evan Davis at over £200,000 pa.
That's one large pay rise for BBC woman, one giant pay rise for BBC womankind.
Those fearing that the BBC might cut back on excessive pay for their top male talent rather than increase the excessive pay of their top female talent will be heartily relieved.
The BBC is making welcome strides towards offering excessive pay awards to all of its top talent, regardless of gender.
Emily and Evan are worth every penny of it, of course. I make it somewhere equivalent to the cost of 1,375+ licence fees that they'll each be getting for presenting Newsnight every year. (In comparison, the UK Prime Minister - whose job is far less important and high-pressured than Emily's - costs around 980 licence fees a year.)
It makes you so proud of the BBC!
