Responding to the publication of BBC star salaries, John O'Connell, chief executive of the TaxPayers' Alliance said:
“BBC salary surges for loaded luvvies fly in the face of ratepayers facing economic ruin.
“These bumper Beeb pay packets are picked from the pockets of pensioners and poor taxpayers, who are fed up of forking out for the licence fee under pain of imprisonment.
“It’s high time we axed the TV tax, introduced a subscription service and stopped taxpayers’ money going to these media millionaires.”
