Next you'll be asking if the permies got a pay rise this year or if their

"FAT CAT BBC director general Mark Thompson and his executive directors are
pocketing cash from a “secret pension pot” while asking staff to accept cuts
in their own retirement packages.
A multi-million-pound “pension slush fund” allows Thompson and eight
executive board members the cash but the rest of the workers are excluded.
