SIR - M Byrne (T&A, June 13) said that he would like to know how the BBC could justify offering Jonathan Ross £18 million over three years.

They can't, but if you are in control of a bureaucratic system that can demand an ever-increasing fee from many people under the threat of a large fine, backed up by an expensive method to find out those who have been so foolish as to not comply, plus political parties are so frightened of you that they allow you to continue to live in the manner to which you have become accustomed, then the BBC can make out that it can justify it.
