More hints about concessions

The Guardian has a big piece today previewing Mark Thompson’s upcoming speech in Edingburgh, and again there are strong hints of concessions on pensions. The talk is of a “climb down”, which would be presented as listening to staff. I must say I’m sceptical. The only climb down which would make a significant difference would be for the BBC to pay off more of the deficit, and that would be a huge retreat. Senior management are reported to have been “taken by surprise” by the ferocity of the reaction to the pensions proposals. Really? If so, it shows how seriously out of touch they have become.

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the message home a
    bit, but other than that, this is magnificent blog. A fantastic read.

    I’ll certainly be back.
