Tory plans for the BBC post election

The Times has discovered the Tory plans for the BBC revealing that the Chairman the will be the first casualty in a shake-up of the corporation if the Tories win the general election.

According to the paper

An incoming Conservative government would scrap the BBC Trust,and create a new body answerable to licence fee payers

The party believes that the changes, which can be carried out within the boundaries of the BBC’s Royal Charter, would give Mr Thompson a “cheerleading chairman” and allow the revamped trust to play more effectively its key role of representing the interests of those who pay £142.50 a year for the BBC’s services.
