A lesson the BBC doesn't want to learn

A squirming BBC had its nose rubbed in the results of an ICM poll yesterday that showed that the public reckoned that nearly all public services had improved since the austerity cuts. In justification of its own income, including the hated TV tax, the BBC has long argued that any cut in income will lead to a loss of quality output; now it is faced with adopting a model that means that ordinary people will actually rate it better if its income plummets. 

Quite why this should be I don't yet know; perhaps the parks, libraries and leisure centres showing such a marked improvement sacked their Guardian-hugging managers as an early first step, thereby immediately improving their efficiency? And could a mass-cull of middle managers at the BBC produce similar results?

So that's why the BBC doesn't like the gassing of badgers...it makes them squirm...

Learning to live without the milky tit of public money could even change these bastards' world view. Let them compete in the real world of Polish plumbers ...

In answer to your last question,
YES.

How about, a massed cull of all of the bbc, I mean - why stop with just 'middle management'?

Perhaps things appeared so shit under the the last Labour (Brown/Balls/Miliband) government that the current Tory shit appears a new dawn by comparison.

Remove every chair from every meeting room in the public sector.

This will improve tthings no end, as all the endless waffle and pontificating will be curtailed, leaving employees time to actually do the jobs they are beinbg paid for.
