The news that the BBC spent over £1m of licence fee payers' money on external lawyers to fight the likes of Samira Ahmed over equal pay got me thinking.
You know how geographical areas in the world are often compared to the size of Belgium (11,850 sq miles) or Wales (8,016 sq miles), well, how should BBC expenditure be described?
How about these: The BBC has spent 'three times the salary of Emily Maitlis' on external lawyers here? Or the BBC has spent 'over twice the salary of Huw Edwards' on external lawyers here? Or the BBC has spent 'over half the salary of Gary Lineker' on external lawyers here?
