A gem from Tuesday’s Daily Mail:
From near the end of the article:
The other BBC supremo who took a pasting yesterday was Zarin Patel, former chief financial officer. She was exceedingly grumpy and obstreperous – pouting like David Mellor’s less photogenic sister – when being interrogated by Tory MP Richard Bacon.
She kept talking about how the decision to press ahead with the digital initiative had been ‘our collective judgment’. What a coward.
Working at the BBC is said to be a hellish steeplechase of committee meetings, but all those committees do have their uses. They can help embarrassed executives dodge responsibility.
