False economy

I've listened to it several times, but I must confess I am baffled by the suggestion.

Mark Thompson suggests that the BBC saved money by paying departing executives more than they were contractually entitled. The only way that works is on the assumption that BBC management are such bad negotiators that if they discussed paying less than the contractual obligation they would negotiate a figure that was far higher.
