Nice Work If You Can Get it...

This is just taking the piss...

Mr Entwistle, who resigned on Saturday night after just 54 days in the job, leaves with a £450,000 lump sum on top of his £877,000 pension pot, which was described as “unjustifiable and unacceptable” by one MP.
The BBC Trust said Mr Entwistle had been given a year’s salary, which amounts to £8,333 for every day he spent as director-general, to “reflect the fact that he will continue to help the BBC business” by giving evidence to a series of inquiries into the Jimmy Savile affair and “to effect a speedy resolution and allow the BBC to move on”.
Autonomous Mind makes a similar point but expressed more eloquently than me
