George Entwistle will go in front the Culture Media and Sport Select Committee next week. The Director General of the BBC will be grilled on the whole Savile issue, but most dangerously for him will be the questions about the then Director of Vision’s involvement in pulling the now infamous Newsnight report in 2011. With Mensch jetting off and Tom Watson quitting as well as Therese Coffey and Damian Collins getting promoted, the CMS is sparsely populated right now. Bradshaw has replaced Watson and only Conor Burns has expressed an interest so far for the Tories. Popcorn time…
@MrHarryCole Believe Coffey and Collins will still grill DG as not been replaced yet. Tom replaced by Ben Bradshaw.

Hear Angie Bray is also running for CMS. Sources close to her pointing out her long career in the media.
