Beyer for BBC chairman?

An odd little piece in Atticus today bemoans the fact that all the good candidates for the vacant BBC Chairman job have declared themselves not interested. This has left Auntie “scraping the barrel” with the only two “confirmed” to be left in the running being Heather Rabbats, executive chairwoman of Millwall FC, and “Massah” John Beyer!

Can you imagine?

UPDATE: (5/02/07) A reliable source confirms that Beyer has indeed applied for the post, but:

It is premature to say that I am a “candidate” so don’t panic yet!

    John Beyer, up for chairman of the BBC? Please tell me I’m still asleep and having a nightmare.

  2. Shome mishtake, shurely? Beyer would get as far as the first board meeting with a known gaymosexual or non-believer and run screaming from the room.

    Where does one apply, what are the perks and in the immortal words of Nigel Tufnell – “What are the hours”?

    Actually I quite fancy a BBC with “Songs Of Praise” on every night. I’d get more reading done.

    I think we should encourage Beyer at all costs. (‘Watching, pointing, laughing’ …It would be HILARIOUS!)
