BBC Spent £5000 on a Holiday For a Couple

The BBC spent £5000 on a holiday for a couple so they could get away to South Africa. The full cost of this could be as much as 34 TV licenses.

Miss Okonedo, star of Undercover, a major new BBC1 police drama received the luxury holiday free.

Apparently, the BBC gave her the holiday so she could meet up with her mystery boyfriend in Johannesburg. Then they flew them both back. This was obviously at the licence payers’ expense.

Of course, there was a whimper from a few concerned people. This is because of the austerity cuts and the fact that the BBC has a massive black hole. Indeed, the BBC has cut its sports budget recently too.

In view of the cuts we are all suffering, the BBC justifies its move. More alarmingly, they are saying that the organisation can give these super perks when the need arises!

Also, The BBC refused a Freedom of Information Act request for details of its spending on the family members and partners of other actors, citing ‘commercial confidentiality’. Er, isn’t freedom of information there to account for our money?
