Lefty Lunacy: Auntie’s eco chic HQ is onto a loo-ser


The BBC’s lavish headquarters, which cost £90 million of your money to run every year, have found that one of their eco drives has come back to bite them.

In an attempt to reduce use of paper-like materials (and to appease the sandal-wearing classes), New Broadcasting House’s loos ditched paper towel dispensers for hand dryers. But after two months, they still haven’t been connected to electricity.

Staff are furious, with one saying that many resort to “wiping their hands on trousers or skirts” (their own, we hope) while others “simply don’t bother to wash their hands anymore, which obviously has hygiene implications given the hot-desking policy. ”

Now there is an even bigger incentive not to shake hands with one of Auntie’s apparatchiks.
