Just heard on the news that the BBC has a new director general. Very boring segment on the news didn't catch his name but my ears did prick up when they said he was a big Palace fan so he is all right in my book.

I hope it is not the bloke who is involved in the phone tapping scandal. Trust the BBC to have a dodgy person on their shortlist

Promoting from within, my guess is they wanted someone they know and can rely on to fight to keep the BBC they way it is.

If and it's a big if the government abolishes the license fee he may not be the right person to help the BBC survive in the commercial world.

Time will tell.

Too late to save them.

But it might soften the changes....I hope Cummings and co aren't fooled.

The BBC website is actually getting more woke.....which I didn't think was possible.

Still very little coverage of the black on black shooting in Harlesden where a 2 year old child shot in head

Well, I suspect the BBC would feel bad about the institutionally racist Police catching him and sending him to the institutionally racist judiciary to send him to an institutionally racist prison.

Perhaps we can insert a bit of Police knee bending during the arrest to soften it all.

All the UK networks have gone to another level of progressive propaganda recently. We are rapidly catching up with the Americans.

This is a reaction to Trump, the rise of Right wing politics in Europe and to counter the endless stream of events that have demonstrated why mass immigration and multi culture are a disaster.

Went on a schoralship (so didn't pay fees) and was 1st member of his family to go to University.

Some of our first team players Victor Moses springs to mind were ex Whitgift as I am sure club had a tie in with the school.

I was introduced to Tim Davie at a Palace game - seems decent bloke. Knew his football.

The head of ITV sport is apparently another Eagles fan so that can't be a bad thing

New boss of BBC is like a new pope......an institution that has clearly lost all credibility.
