One Question PAC Should Ask Mark Thompson

For the third time in 15 months Mark Thompson is back home answering questions about a BBC scandal, up in front of the Public Accounts Committee today. Guido has one question they should ask him.

Below is a letter sent by law firm Mills & Reeve on behalf of Thompson and BBC exec Helen Boaden to the Sunday Times’ lawyers on the 6th September 2012. In it, Thompson and Boaden threaten to sue the Sunday Times if it publishes a story by freelance hack Miles Goslett detailing their knowledge of the Savile scandal. Thompson has always claimed he knew nothing of the sex abuse rumours about Jimmy Savile until after he quit as BBC chief, on the 16th September 2012.

How can Thompson have denied knowing about allegations which his own lawyer was threatening to sue a newspaper over? Perhaps the PAC should try to find out…

    Sir Stephen Bubb. Leader of the Charity Bosses' Union...A Labour party member says:

    Head of the Association of Chief Executives of Voluntary Organisations

    Bubb was a Labour Party member of Lambeth Borough Council for Clapham Town ward from 1982, serving as chief whip for the Labour group. When the Labour group protested against rate-capping by refusing to set a rate, Bubb was among 32 Lambeth councillors who were surcharged for causing the council a financial loss by wilful misconduct. This action disqualified him from being a councillor for five years from the end of March 1986

    With breathtaking arrogance, the chief spokesman for Britain’s voluntary organisations declares that charity bosses’ inflated salaries are ‘simply not an issue’ for donors.

    The BBC have been running rac!ally divisive programming in the US for a while now on the BBC America channel.

    Like P!ers M’organ, T’hompson is a flawed liberal left apartchik who has been appointed to one of the major liberal left media outlets.

    The rationale behind these types of appointments is somewhat muddied now.

    Thompson will be safe at the New York Times until the stock or circulation drops, or the board find someone more agreeable to head what is reputed to be a wholesome family broadsheet.

    The dubious UK appointments of the left will be axed one way or another when O’bama is finally evicted.

    Great digging by Guido, as ever.

    But as someone who has not been following the precise twists & turns of this case, it would have been nice to have seen a quote or two from Mark Thompson denying that he knew about the claims prior to Sept 6th. Then, in my view, you would have him bang to rights. As it is, we only have your word that he has denied knowing about the accusations at the time of the (heavy handed) letter.

    Even more strange is that she now appears on the BBC two to three times a week. So with an election coming and the BBC supposedly not biased politically, why is a labour former junior minister given so much exposure by the BBC.

    Mainstream media outlets lost interest in this whole story way too early. Thompson misled; Patten knows all about it and has carried on the cover-up.

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