'Newswatch' news

In other news...

Newswatch's Samira Ahmed is taking the BBC to an employment tribunal claiming that the BBC paid her less than male colleagues for equivalent work. 

Newswatch fans will doubtless appreciate the irony of what follows:

According to the Guardian, they invited Samira to comment but she declined and referred their request to her lawyers, who declined to elaborate. 

And the BBC declined their invitation to comment too. 


What happens next is inevitable: The BBC's lawyers will go to the tribunal and simply claim that the BBC got it about right.

  1. No Samira yesterday... some old duffer instead. Typical BBC dithering in not settling things quickly when caught out.
