. @mediaguardian reports @GreensladeR : Does @GovUK want #BBC as state broadcaster
There are lessons here for Britain that the government, especially culture secretary John Whittingdale, should take on board. Its wish to change the way the BBC is governed by packing the board with its own appointees raises questions of impartiality. The BBC has never been, and should not be, a “state broadcaster”, neither in practice nor in perception.
