BBC cuts vital news services by 60m

This is horrific and unacceptable and will damage public services even further.

This of course is taking place against the trousering of huge amounts of public money and a broken and corrupt previous management. I have no idea why that lame thing called the BBC Trust is not acting on behalf of licence fee payers and insisting that there must be a serious public value test and really just putting their responsible hats on and actually looking for once at where the money is being mis spent.

Oh yes, sorry I FORGOT, the Trust are the worst culprits in all of this and have been wilfully negligent and incompetent AND most of their lazy idiotic trustees have not even bothered to make any sort of statement about their failure or even to reassure licence fee payers that they have a grip!

Yes Tiger and it also begs the question, why are the "management" people with the large pay-offs, not being asked to return the payments they were not entitled to and why are some of them still in post, even though they proved to be incompetent at their jobs?  Why are they being allowed to get away with this. 
All this goes to prove is that local radio could have been left alone, not had "cuts" in budget, because it seems to me that money was available for them to carry on normally, without them losing any jobs or services.
