Quentin Letts on three Entitlement Princesses – Lady Sally Morgan, Lady Liddle (Catherine Thomson), Zarin Patel

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.
