"Kevin Burden, the head of training at the trust, told the inquest that he witnessed Mrs Boto being "marginalised and demonised by the management". "The director of the world service said to me she was a failure and there was no place for failures at the BBC," said Mr Burden."Funny. Seems to me to be plenty of room...
Of course, the lawyers are circling hungrily. The attitude of the husband shows a new brand of cheek:
"Mrs Boto's husband Tom said the family would consider the possibility of taking legal action against the BBC.I suspect he wouldn't like to see that particular tack tried against, say, gynaecologists...
"The question will always remain – even if the BBC did everything correct in terms of procedure, is there something more that they could have done?" he said."
I was "demonised" and "branded a failure" by my drill sergeant in Aldershot. Well, of course, those weren't his exact words but, delivered approximatey 2.5" from my left ear that is more or less what they amounted to.
I think I shall consider legal action!
Better not suggest Army-style 'staff reporting' for the BBC staff - there won't be many of them left...!
