BBC staff attack executive pay rises as 'obscene'

BBC staff have publicly criticised as 'obscene, obscene, obscene' the pay rises awarded to the corporation's executive directors last year.
They used Ariel, the BBC's in-house magazine, to attack the salaries of Mark Thompson, the director-general, and the nine other members of the executive board.
They said it was unacceptable that the board had accepted a pay rise of 17 per cent when staff had to put up with an increase of only four per cent.
