BBC should be sporting enough to reveal Euros contingent

Editor's Viewpoint

Published 08/04/2016

The BBC is somewhat coy in refusing to reveal how many of its people and resources it is sending to the Euro finals this summer.

This is a contrast to the current stance of blowing its own trumpet about its intended wall-to wall coverage of the upcoming elections.

Sometimes the BBC, on its electronic high horse, seems to forget that it is funded by an indirect tax on all of us. We need to know how the BBC will be spending our money at the Euro finals. Such a disclosure would be sporting and also basic good manners to its funders.
