    1. Geez can you imagine the lines in front of the dunnies when they installed the halflush/dual flush systems.

      “Under NO circumstances is any BBC employee permitted to make use of new WC without workplace trainer authorisation.  Workplace training for use of new facilities will be provided 9-10AM and 2-3PM for the week ending 20/12.  Employee training will be credited towards relevant BBC/dual-flush competency standards, and can be attended at the taxpayers expense.  “

    1. From the story: “Employees at BBC Radio Sheffield in the north of England had previously been instructed on how to get through the often confusing and peril-laden task of boiling a kettle.
      The Sun quoted the edict as saying: “Remove lid from kettle and fill kettle with water.” ‘

      What a buncha maroons.
