The Carrie Gracie saga gets more farcical by the minute.
Firstly; how can the BBC achieve “equality” without, a) levelling up women employees’ pay or b) bringing male employees’ pay down? (allegedly forbidden under employment law)
Secondly; not quitting the BBC looks like having cake and eating.
Thirdly; why agree to co-present the Today Programme with stratospheric-salaried John Humphrys?
Fourthly; what if the entire sisterhood decides to sue the Beeb?
Fifthly, does ‘equal pay for equal work’ apply to a unique post like, say, China Editor?
Sixthly; some below the line commenters are comparing Carrie Gracie unfavourably to Jeremy Bowen in terms of ‘danger money’. They say Bowen could be shot at any moment.
