NOT SO BRIGHT: How many people does it take to change a LIGHTBULB at the taxpayer-funded BBC?

THE BBC has come under fire for wasting licence-fee payers money on an extravagant light bulb replacement job that cost thousands of pounds.

TEN contractors took FOUR days to change lightbulbs in the BBC’s plush new £1m newsroom that was opened by The Queen in 2013.

Planners built an extravagant news auditorium at Broadcasting House but the bright sparks forgot how they would change lightbulbs in the future.

This slip led to BBC bosses erecting SCAFFOLDING in the Newsroom, just to change light bulbs and according to one BBC employee, they still missed one.

According to one expert, (Me, using basic common sense), the job could’ve been much, much easier and cheaper.

All the BBC had to do, was hire a fucking cherry picker, and they could have saved me and you THOUSANDS.

The job isn’t finished yet, as the BBC will have to close the other half of the Newsroom during the May bank holiday to change the bulbs on the other side of the newsroom, with more scaffolding, workmen and tax reddies.

A BBC spokesman said: “Like all light bulbs, those in the BBC need to be replaced sometimes.”

Referring to the need for scaffolding, he added: “Whilst we do employ some tall people, we don’t have anyone that’s 27ft tall.”
