Stotty on Sunday: GREG TRIPE.
GREG Dyke, former director general of the BBC now in full whining mode about the unfairness of his removal from the job after his bundled handling of the Gilligan affair, has called for the abolition of the BBC's governors. Their independence, he reckons, is a myth.
This attack presumably has nothing to do with the fact that when Dyke offered his resignation after the Gilligan debacle he did so expecting the governors to reject it. They didn't, they seized the chance to be rid of him with both hands. Thus proving - if not quite in the way Dyke would have wished - their independence.
