The deafening silence

Isn’t it interesting how few senior BBC managers have come out in support of the attack on our pensions? Pat Younge has put his head above the parapet, but I can’t think of another senior figure beyond Zarin Patel and Lucy Adams – who are both paid to do this sort of thing – who has spoken out. On the other hand, over the weeks I’ve been running this blog I’ve had several discreet indications of support from people paid a lot more than me.

I doubt there’s more than half a dozen senior managers in the entire organisation who support what Thompson is doing.

This is a house of cards that could still come tumbling down, if we only keep pushing.
