BBC staff are said to be in “uproar” after the corporation’s canteen instigated a “six chip” rule for cooked meals.
Servers in the kitchens at Broadcasting House caused widespread bafflement after they were seen individually counting out chips as part of a new quota for employees.
Rebellion quickly started brewing among the BBC’s staff over the policy, some of whom took to social media to express their dismay.
Sharing a picture of his pitiful serving on Twitter, Arif Ansari, head of news at the BBC Asian Network, wrote: “New rules in the BBC canteen limit the number of chips to six.
The bosses deny it all. But I want it to be true. For I’d like to make sure that whatever nonsense it is that people think they’d like to impose upon us – booze limits, potato consumption, reductions in meat eating, no sugar in soda pop, all of them – get imposed good and hard on the BBC first.
