 'Anodyne smarminess personified' commands a pretty penny on the Beeb. 

I've still to decide on how to respond to the Beeb's insistence on taking money out of my bank account every month. I'd sooner spend the money on planting trees or give it to the Woodland Trust.

I can't remember where  I read that Linekerman was 'off-payroll' at the Beeb. In other words not paying PAYE and national insurance like a few of them. If it is the case, where's the money going to?

Sue Barker, Tuffers and Matt Dawson all axed. Too popular or the pursuit of yoof? Tuffers and Dawson are younger than Lineker and Barker's  more entertaining and personable any day of the week. Hard not to be, wouldn't it?

Gary Lineker is a brilliant host on MOTD, and on BT's live football.

I pay no attention to the rest of the shite.

This isnt on that she is allowed to do it, yet others get into trouble and are stopped.
You have to wonder why she is allowed and whom she knows at the top.
I totally agree, I have never understood why Winkleman is the top earning female at the BBC.  I think it must be because of her shiny hair and the fact that she  knows where the bodies are buried.

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.


Mr Lineker is in want of his third and is rather fond of  shite and shitloads of money, Miss Whittam, and much admired by all those who provide it.

Gary Lineker - No thanks

But they are such 'incredible value' according to the Beeb's latest Director General.

Not incredible value to me, Sunshine. I don't spend any of my time watching or listening to this lot.

And then we have the extortionate fees that 'are not included in the figures'.

Lineker has taken a 23% pay cut and is willing to put up an asylum seeker from what i've heard. He could just have easily left the BBC and Sky or BT would have paid him much more.

He does seem to be the right wing punch bag just because he voted remain and has a brain unlike most of the gammons out there.

Ball and Norton are extremely good at interviewing people and getting the very best out of all types, so that a wonderful atmosphere is created in a way that very, very few others could emulate. Those who produce great entertainment for the masses will always get paid more, though I totally agree that, despite that, the wages are ridiculously high.

Yes but the world doesn't revolve around you does it? So who cares what you think? They've decided what to pay their 'stars' presumably based on market conditions and ratings, not just plucked out of thin air to give you something to cry about.

How are these wages assessed ? I'm sure there are many people out in the world who are just as good at talking, and probably far more productive than these so called 'stars'

Simply describing them as 'stars' is a scam.

How do they get these positions and pay? I expect it helps if you move in the right circles and conform to the prevailing groupthink.

And of course do anything to stay in the limelight. An example being Carol Vorderman who has had so many incarnations that I think she now appears younger than when she first started.

I find Lineker dull as ditch water. Likewise Shearer. They might as well just show the highlights without them.
Even after match interviews are a waste of time. They've all been media trained to string sentences together that mean nothing.
I just watch the goals on youtube.

Trying too hard to look young isn't always the best idea but I can see no evidence of Ms Vorderman being the object of Dave Hartnett's venom. 

Carol mainly worked for Channel 4 on what I expect the likes of Mr Personality Lineker would regard as 'a pittance'.

I think you're mistaking Shearer for someone else as he always says what he thinks, he's had a pop at everyone over the past few years. Very entertaining at times.

He's the number one pundit across all the channels, although Roy Keane is rather brilliant on Sky.

He says what he thinks, but in a dull way. Mind you, Andy Townsend is as bad as it gets over on ITV.

You really have to feel sorry for Alan Shearer. Every week during the footie season, he  has to traipse along to a TV studio and spend what could be as much as two or even three minutes talking about football when he could be down the pub having a drink with the lads. Sometimes he even 'says what he thinks'.

Now the penny pinching Beeb have reduced his salary to a measly £395K. Its an absolute outrage. How can he possibly keep up any decent standard of living on such a pittance?

A 95% reduction would be more like it. I expect this 'asylum seeker' (male or female?) will have a more rigorous assessment than Lineker's ever had at the Beeb and isn't he already being paid by BT as well?

As for having a brain, where was that when SIX TIMES he 'invested' into the kind of tax avoidance schemes that were bound, RIGHTLY,  to get right up the noses of HMRC and caused the backlash that predictably followed?

His first wife and mother of his four children divorced him because of the 'stress and anxiety' his 'unreasonable behaviour' had caused her during their marriage. Anyone believe her? I do.

Well yes it is but I can't say Shearer sends me to sleep. I can't be bothered to stay awake to watch MOTD on a Saturday night. I know I'll only get irritated at the very sight of Smarmypants Lineker.

The sense of entitlement these slebs have to the grotesque amounts of money they extract from the Beeb Tax is nothing short of an abomination.
