BBC run by ‘weasels’: Disgruntled British DJ

A well-known British DJ reacted to news that his show had been cancelled with an extended on-air rant against what he called the “pinheaded weasels’’ running the BBC

A well-known British DJ reacted to news that his show had been cancelled with an extended on-air rant against what he called the “pinheaded weasels’’ running the BBC.

Danny Baker joins a roster of disgruntled employees who have decided — like Peter Finch’s unhinged news anchor in the film “Network’’ — that they’re mad as hell and they’re not going to take it anymore.

Baker blamed the decision to cancel his afternoon show on BBC London local radio on cost-cutting middle management “who know only timid,the generic and the abacus.’’

“I hope their abacus comes undone and they choke on the beads,’’ Baker said.

Listeners took to Twitter to support Baker,who has been a respected broadcaster for 30 years.
