It seems to me that the BBC cannot get through any current news programme without informing us how evil “big business” really is and how the bankers, in particular, broke Britain. They know that repetition of this meme rams it into the heads of those listening and this is one of the things that is most dangerous about the Corporation. With Comrade Vince Cable doing his best to slay the capitalism “red in tooth and claw”, the BBC brought on Nicola Horlick who agreed that “something” must be done about “excessive pay” for “executives. I suspect that the BBC probably support the ravings of George Monbiot over at The Guardian and his demand for a “maximum wage” as well as a “minimum wage”. At no point is anyone allowed to turn around and say that it is NO BUSINESS of Government to tell private businesshow much it should pay those who work for it. And if Nicola Horlick thinks that excess pay is such an issue why not bring up the massive £800,000 that Mark Thompson earns, care of those of us forced to pay for the BBC?
