Discussion topic suggestion

Here's one for you...
We read in the papers today that the BBC has lost an industrial tribunal on the grounds of ageism. In what can only be interepreted as a major admonishment, we ask what the BBC can learn from this case. We also look at the BBC's current and future employment policy, asking what future anybody working for the BBC has if they are over 50 and have political views that are not compatible with the BBC's pro-left broadcasting policy.
Later in the programme, we look at the future employment prospects of the BBC managers that created this problem and ask if they should be promoted, or if they should start learning to ask "Do you want fries with that?".
Go on, I dare you.
