London Tory Party Chairman Appointed New DG of BBC

The New BBC Director-General is Tim Davie.

The important bits from his CV ...
  • Tories Councillor candidate;
  • Deputy Chairman of the Hammersmith and Fulham Conservative Party.

Whatever his industry qualifications - and there are many - this political history in the current climate should bar him from the position. He has previously been in charge of various departments, all non-political, non-news.

That one so overtly political should be given this role is madness - he will now have the final say on news content.

Good luck getting BBC News & Current Affairs to ever hold a Government to account with him in charge.
