Following the controversial political decision made by the DG of the BBC regarding Gary Linneker’s comments, he is clearly anxious to establish himself as an impartial character, and so is swift to accept the Chairman’s resignation since he (the DG) is the archetypal politician, wooing the credulity of the crowd.
There is no doubt in my mind that of the more politically interfering the DG is the one who should be going. Not that I think Mr Sharp should be staying either. A clear case of bribery and corruption at the heart of this current (2019) government.
As it stands for me, Tim Davie is still on probation for his misguided action of a few weeks ago.
