Jo Whiley - BBC scab

Radio "personality" Jo Whiley crossed picket lines to work during the 2005 strike of BBC workers against job cuts.

Fellow Beeb journalist Steve Bunce on BBC London later complained about not being able to give out prizes, he blamed "the stuff that Scabby Whiley's been up to."

Possibly then after someone had a word in his ear he followed up with "Well, she is a scab, isn't she. She crossed a picket line. No argument there. She's a scab so we can call her that."

No arguments here!

Just how many of the front line "celebs" in the BBC aren't scabs? It appears like the class system spelled large at the Aunty - most militant workers are the back-room dispensables just like any other bastard business.
