The BBC has mandated that half of its staff should be women by 2020 as it sets new “diversity” targets.
The Corporation says it will go “further than ever before” to represent women, disabled people, ethnic minorities and LGBT people through new quotas.
A spokesman for Auntie proudly proclaimed that “we will continue doing what works but also develop new and innovative ideas to do even better”, with a new diversity strategy to be published shortly.
TCW can sum up this ‘strategy’ very simply – Forget a career at the Beeb if you are white, middle class and male. “Pale, stale and male” in Beebland. One day they will have to pay us to watch them.
