Giuseppe Sandro Mela.
Pubblico è bello in uno stato socialista, ma lo è ancora di più se sei femmina ed incardinata nella massoneria. E chi te la fa fare di sgobbare alla produzione quando ci sono i posti nelle Pubbliche Amministrazioni? E poi, nel parastato chi riesce ad entrarci ci prospera benissimo.
Carriere inspiegabili. Velocissime e con remunerazioni da fantastilioni.
Mezzi busti insignificanti, pronubi al potere ed ai suoi voleri. Femmine pimpanti, dismesse dalle alcove per limiti di età e carenza fisiologica delle prestazioni, transitate al ruolo di “inviate speciali“. Ma il politicamente corretto impone di dire che le femmine sono molto, ma molto meglio dei fu-maschi, più intelligenti, brave ed oneste.
Nella vita c’è sempre un però.
Se fossero davvero tali non avrebbero certo bisogno delle “quote rose” per trovarsi una greppia a cui brucare.
Anchor-man ed anchorwoman disperatamente tesi/e a giustificare qualsiasi cosa avessero fatto gli egemoni, a prevenirne i desiderata, ed ad indottrinare il popolo bue. Bue perché si beve tutto come oro colato. Persone che si lodano tra di loro, ma delle quali ci si dimentica in un amen il giorno che scompaiono.
Poi, un bel giorno, la storia insegna che il popolo “bue” si ricorda di quando era “toro“, ossia con una bella quota di testosterone nelle vene. Ed allora la notorietà di questi figuri diventa motivo della loro condanna.
Per chi avesse una buona memoria e qualche rudimento elementare di storia:
«il 30 piovoso, anno IV della Repubblica (19 febbraio 1796) in forma pubblica in Place Vendôme» ….
Un bel rogo più la ghigliottina, ed in quattro e quattro fa otto lo stato non ha più avuto bisogno di pagare quegli stipendi di platino impreziosito di diamanti: tutti due metri sotto terra. Senza la testa ed alquanto abbrustoliti. Benedette siano le rivoluzioni!
Solo la morte risolve certi problemi.

→ Bbc. 2016-08-10. BBC’s Clare Balding earns more than £500,000.
The BBC’s Rio Olympics anchor Clare Balding earned more than £500,000 last year, cementing her position as one of the UK’s highest-earning female presenters.
The sports broadcaster made £516,712 in the year to the end of October 2015.
According to documents filed at Companies House Balding, who works for the BBC covering events including Wimbledon and BT, receives payments for services as a TV presenter and royalties as an author.
Her company Clearly Clare shows that shareholders’ funds rose from £1.24m to £1.76m year on year, the difference effectively being the amount she earned during last year.
The filing also shows that last year a fixed asset worth £1.33m was added to the company.
While the asset is not named, one City analyst said it is typical for something like a house. Balding also sold off an un-named asset for £300,000.
The amount the company had in cash at the bank fell from £1m to £485,000.
Balding’s earnings have emerged as a debate grows over what proportion of the BBC’s top stars should be made to officially reveal their salaries.
The government’s white paper on the future of the BBC has settled at those on more than £450,000, after originally mulling a threshold of £150,000.
Last week a committee of MPs published a report calling for the level to be those on more than £143,000, approximately the level of the combined ministerial and parliamentary salary of the prime minister (£143,462 a year).
BBC presenter Andrew Neil said this week that he is happy to have his salary made public, admitting he does earn more than the PM, but only if the number of programmes he fronts each year is made clear.
→ The Guardian. 2016-08-10. BBC should reveal pay of stars earning more than £143,000, say MPs
The BBC should reveal the salaries of stars paid more than £143,000 a year as part of a new era of openness under the next royal charter, according to an influential committee of MPs.
The Commons culture, media and sport select committee, which has released its report after the government’s publication in May of the white paper on the BBC, also endorsed the creation of a Scottish Six news programme and questioned the decision to appoint the BBC Trust chair, Rona Fairhead, as head of a new BBC unitary board without a full formal appointment process.
The white paper already lays out rules forcing the the BBC to publish the salaries of stars earning more than £450,000, but the committee says that figure should be reduced to £143,000 in line with rules on executives.
The BBC has argued that even publishing the salaries of those earning more than the higher figure – thought to include names such as Chris Evans, Gary Lineker and Graham Norton – would create a “poachers’ charter” and make it easier for commercial rivals to lure top talent.
A BBC spokesperson said: “The BBC has led the way in transparency by publishing details of senior manager salaries over £150,000, and already publishes more information about talent pay than other broadcasters.
“We cut our bill for talent pay by £8m last year, but creating a poacher’s charter by publishing the salaries of individual presenters and actors wouldn’t be in the interests of licence fee payers who say they want the best talent on the BBC. We believe the proposal in the white paper is a sensible compromise.”
However, the MPs argued that salaries were already known throughout the industry. “The point is that all these salaries are paid by the licence fee payer, whether they are for broadcasters or BBC executives,” said Damian Collins, the acting chair of the committee.
“Why should there be different rules for each? It’s disingenuous to say confidentiality is needed to prevent poaching when in general everyone in the industry knows what everyone else is getting paid. The threshold should be the same for both executives and talent, the salary of anyone getting paid more than the prime minister should be published.”
The combined ministerial and parliamentary salary of the prime minister was £143,462 in April 2016, according to Parliament UK. This figure includes the parliamentary salary of £74,962.
On the creation of a Scottish Six, the committee backed the most ambitious of three proposals being considered by the BBC which would see the programme almost entirely run from Scotland.
In a separate statement, SNP committee member and former BBC news presenter John Nicholson said: “BBC Scotland should now deliver a high-quality six o’clock television news programme for Scottish audiences with a broader remit of national, UK, and international stories, in the way that Radio Scotland or any newspaper already does.
“This cross-party committee found that for a ‘Scottish Six’ to work it needs to be edited and presented from Scotland. The BBC must resist any hybrid options with a parallel studio and co-presenter in London for non-Scottish stories. As the committee concluded – this would be both needlessly extravagant, and patronising.”
Concerns over Fairhead’s appointment to the role follow her appearance before the committee last month, in which Nicholson claimed it had broken rules on public appointments.
Commenting on the committee’s findings on her appointment, Collins said: “Ms Fairhead’s experience with the trust and the benefits of continuity might well have favoured her in a proper, open recruitment process. But given the prestige of the new role it is likely that other strong candidates could have emerged.
“At any rate, it would not be appropriate for any minister, including even the prime minister, simply to offer her the job. Whatever rules for public appointments are finally settled on, there must always be a very good reason for not following due process. That was simply not the case here.”
The committee also said it supported recommendations from the BBC director general, Tony Hall, for a smaller unitary board with a greater number of independent directors, suggesting a split of five government appointees and a further seven made up of executive and non-executive roles.
