What a Buerk

There seems to be an unwritten rule for well-known BBC employees that, once you have left the job, you run to the right-wing press to slag off the organisation which paid your wages for decades. The latest to do this is Michael Buerk.

Although he praised some BBC managers, including Mark Thompson, the director general, Mr Buerk said some of his bosses were “totally transparent t******.”

Mr Buerk, 65, has previously criticised BBC newsreaders, saying their role was “the only job that actually requires no talent at all”.

Mmm… How much talent does it take to provide the voiceover for Louie Spence’s Showbusiness, Michael?
