Im with JohnG on this one, its funded by british licence payers money, why cant it be staffed by people from the same country, are there not enough people out there in britain who need jobs, are there not enough competent IT staff out there in britain qualified for the job, why do we need some two bit ex AOL employee at the reigns, I look forward to seeing americanised BBC editorial in the future!
