Tubridy tipped for permanent move to BBC after accepting Christmas slot

RYAN Tubridy is returning to the BBC this Christmas, fuelling speculation he is contemplating a permanent move away from RTE.

The 37-year-old has agreed to sacrifice his Christmas holidays and will also miss out on some family time with his two daughters Ella (12) and Julia (7). It is not known how much he is being paid to take over a radio slot that commands an audience of six million.

Despite haemorrhaging a third of listeners from his 2fm show in the past year, Mr Tubridy enjoyed impressive ratings when he filled in for Graham Norton this summer.

Now bosses at the Beeb have asked him to take over a more high-profile weekday slot on Radio 2 from presenter Ken Bruce from Tuesday December 27 to Friday December 30 -- a clear indication they may be considering offering him a full-time role.

Something positive anyway.

Normally I consider Pat to simply be an excessive waste of taxpayers money. Now, however he has enraged me. Where he says "these people put themselves on the line", is he trying to associate himself with people who actually put themselves on the line? When is the last time you walked into a fire to pull someone out Pat? Or waded through dangerous flood waters to bring them to safety? When is the last time he picked up bloodied or overdosed citizens off the street in a near riot situation to take them to hospital? In the middle of the night, Christmas night perhaps? For a take home pay of around 2,300 per month, with no medical benefits when his back gives out from wear and tear lifting people? Get a grip Pat. Apologies if I am ranting, just off a seventeen hour shift and have no time for his shite. (Also, I'm not complaining in any sense about my own pay, it is absolutely adequate, its the inequality and his whingeing defense of his ridiculous salary that's annoying me.) Grrr.

Have a look at this role, look at the education requirements, the many extra hours and stress all for a few quid (60-70k package)

Then imagine the easy old life the RTE crew have compared to this life shortening poverty role.

High-larious. Have you considered a career in showbusiness? I believe the terms in the state broadcaster are quite good, and you would fit right in.

Plank on the frontline. "If we didn't pay the 700million and if we don't pay the 1.2billion due in January, then that's 2.9 billion we have saved".

:roll:

I guess when you have taxpayers cash coming out your arse you don't have to worry about household budgets and maths and stuff. And if you want something you can always steal it. 8)
