Introduce BBC Pay Cap at £100k

This petition had 74 supporters

Following the announcement of BBC presenter wages it is clear that far too many people at the BBC are earning extortionate salaries. Salaries which you, the British taxpayer, are forced to pay through your TV licence.

£15,000 a night for Gary Lineker's hotels? £2.2m a year for Chris Evans? £450k for Claudia Winkleman? This is money which could be better spent through a tax and used in struggling front-line services such as the NHS, fire departments or schools.

Women at the BBC should be paid the same as the men, though this should not be achieved through pay increases. A pay cap should be introduced to reduce the astronomical wages that ALL BBC staff are on and to align pay across genders.

At the same time as a cap is introduced, a thorough review should be conducted into spending, wages of all employees at the BBC, and the appropriate cost the public should pay for their TV licence.

This is your money, they are stealing it. Take back some control.
