Chuka Adviser Agreed Entwistle Pay Off…While Watching Strictly

£110,000-a-year part-timer Lord Patten has hardly endeared himself to critics by signing off George Entwistle’s £450,000 golden goodbye. But who were the other guilty men and women who helped make the decision?

During this weekend’s episode of Strictly Come Dancing Patten held a conference call with lawyers and two members of the BBC Trust’s remuneration committee, Anthony Fry and Diane Coyle.

Taking a leaf out of her boss’ book, Coyle is paid £70,610-a-year of license fee payers’ cash to work just two and a half days a week for the BBC. And what does she do in her spare time, other than watching Strictly with a glass of red that is? Last year Coyle was an unpaid adviser to none other than Chuka Umunna, helping the two-faced shadow business secretary with his policy review.

Chuka was quick to criticise Phillip Schofield but has been oddly quiet about the former BBC DG…

UPDATE: Coyle has got in touch to clarify that she was actually drinking white wine, not red.

UPDATE II: And here’s the proof:

    it’s clear that the BBC, the Labour Party and their front organisation: the Bureau for Investigative Journalism are all working hand in glove to smear and denigrate their political opposition, particularly the Conservatives and UKIP.

    That a public service broadcaster, compulsorily funded, on pain of imprisonment, by the British public, is behaving in such a blatantly biased and underhand way is a disgrace. Cameron should buck himself up and start the ball rolling to scrap the licence fee for this discredited and shambolic organisation.

Coyle on the BBC Trust and married to a BBC employee – doesn’t that represent a conflict of interest? Maybe that’s why technology ignoramus and Apple sycophant Cellan Jones who never lets the facts stand in the way of a good story still has his job? The back-scratching self- service brigade marches on with their snouts firmly in the trough with two fingers up to the taxpayer….

    Coyle’s correction of what wine she was drinking in light of the very serious concerns that have been raised about the BBC just demonstrates how arrogant and out of touch she is. She might think it clever but whilst she is enjoying her privileged, minimum working hours maximum remuneration as a professional champagne socialist the ordinary “little people” are struggling to pay their energy bills, thanks in no small part to policies on climate change. And if they want the dubious pleasure of watching TV as they fret about whether to keep warm or to eat they have the BBC licence fee extorted from them.

    Her comment was worthy of Marie Antoinette and that is obscene coming from a supposed socialist. She should resign or be sacked.

    “Now why would I want to take this ‘poisoned chalice’?”, asked Enters, quite visibly incredulous that the offer was even being made.
    “We’ve got all kinds of shit on everyone in this God-forsaken outfit, you included, George. No-one’s budget and spending, in this type of operation, could stand up to scrutiny before a Parliamentary committee. You know, and I know, plenty of quid go south. You may not be an all-time champion at it, George, in fact you probably don’t even make the ‘Europe’ places, but a word here and there, and there’ll be plenty of snooping into how much is ‘wasted’ if not outright pilfered in your department.”
    “OK, you’ve said why SOMEONE could be ‘persuaded’ to take it– but why me? What have I done to anyone to make them want to do me in professionally?”
    “Well that’s it, isn’t it, George– not so much what you’ve been doing, as what you haven’t been, and that’s, getting any younger. This is a young man’s game, and you’ve been around long enough to know that. At least you should have been able to figure that out by now.”
    “All right, I get it, you want an ‘older experienced hand at the tiller’. You want someone of my age, with a long CV with the company to be a figurehead. OK– but what happens the next time the shit hits the fan? You’re setting me up as a fall guy, don’t think I haven’t sussed that!”
    “Yes, George, a well-paid fall guy, who will do his best Sergeant Schultz impression, and take the money and run, and collect a nice BBC pension augmented by the rise in pay to the Director’s post.”
    “Why do I feel like I have no choice in the matter?”
    “You have a choice, George– it’s up or out. Now line your pocket for all your troubles in taking one for the team, if you have the sense God gave a goose. Now, if you have no more questions, I’ll officially release the news of your appointment…”

    ‘Tories lower than scum’- yes sounds like a BBC person. I note that Patten was quoted as saying that he wasn’t going to let Murdoch force him out. The anti-centre/centre right is obvious everywhere, right to the top.

    While the Spanish Ex Pat first wave return starts this weekend ( new Spanish property law kicks in ).

    While 6000 nursing posts lost

    While FT100 slides back

    While Tory MPs vote WITH whip to up the cost of fuel.

    Keep it up neo nuts !!!!!

    Gooey Blob says:

    The BBC suffer from what might be termed Right-blindness. They are blinded to or by anything to the right of centre in British politics.

    Until the management at BBC wakes up and realises the body is riddled with this affliction, it will carry on making the same mistakes, making groundless accusations against Tories and maybe the occasional Orange Booker.

    Remember, this time last year the BBC were apologising on-air for implying that the PM had “nobbled” Andrew Tyrie. The original report had been shown on News at Ten with an eudience of millions. The apology was hidden away on News 24 during rush-hour.

    Cameron loves most things, that’s his MO.
    But a destroyed brand is a destroyed brand and some people seem to forget that the McAlpine smear is merely a side scandal (served up by the BBC themselves) in an attempt to deflect from the huge police investigation over Savile and the 30 other BBC employees past and present that 300+ people are alleging some sort of sex crime against. Never mind the institutional facilitation and cover-up of these crimes that is likely to emerge in any serious enquiry.

    It puzzles me how this woman was appointed to the BBC Trust when her husband was a senior BBC journalist of years standing,wasnt this a conflict of interest? was it declared?Then to be part of the renumeration committee presiding over the salaries paid to senior BBC execectives some of whom may have had jurisdiction over her husband,did this ever happen? and if so de she recuse herself,come on Guido this needs to be looked into further.

    They might just get jobs, start a business, work for a genuine charity, practice a sport to the point of excellence.

    But no. Jus’ get rich and famous (or die tryin’) playing/being a gangsta, or maybe a rapper innit. Bitches everywhere, bling, bust a cap in any homies ass dat dis’respec’ dem.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
