Make the BBC give Bernie Keith a well-deserved pay rise before it's too late!

Bernie Keith is a genuinely witty and charming man who is loved worldwide. In a recent international poll by UNUTTER (the UN's international polling agency), Bernie Keith was the most common response when respondents were asked which local radio presenter they would most like to listen to when aroused in the morning.

During a poster campaign promoting Bernie's show, the BBC received a record number of complaints that the pictures of Bernie grinning out from the sides of buses were far too seductive and distracting, causing many bumps and moans as drivers became excited by the image and would clench their gear stick far too hard. I myself suffered during that time: when an old man saw Bernie's poster, he lost control and went into my rear, damaging my pipe beyond repair. 

It is only fair that someone who is 1000% more likable and infinitely better looking than Chris Evans gets paid at least 10x as much.

I have to say that Andrew Marr is not that bad and I feel for him after his stroke, but Bernie has also had several strokes and still continues working, despite being numb from the waist down and between the ears.
