This settlement has done very little to resolve the damage done to an innocent and loyal employee and not to mention the royal family. Those responsible at the BBC have escaped largely unscathed and the investigation into and damages awarded as a result of the actions taken by Bashir have cost TV license payers up to £3M. This was blatant defamation and a dog whistle for misogyny.
According to the Dyson inquiry, Bashir lied to several people at the BBC over the incident. Although his conduct fell far short of the high standards of integrity and transparency expected of BBC journalists, damages have now been awarded and Bashir no longer works for the corporation. BBC has done all it can to resolve the issue.
