Boris Johnson announces plans for roadmap to ‘reform BBC’
Former newspaper editor Charles Moore, who has been a fierce critic of the corporation over its politically correct bias, is said to be No 10’s choice for the job. The move would infuriate BBC bosses over fears it will lead to the end of compulsory payments to fund it and a radical change in culture.

Andrew Neil said BBC executives “were choking on their muesli” when he was previously linked to the job.
The political broadcaster ruled out taking on the role but said now Lord Moore is favourite he expected the BBC to be “begging me to take it”.
The peer, 63, has been highly critical of the BBC’s Question Time for being constantly dominated by the political classes.
He said guests were overwhelmingly Remainers and the show “utterly fails to reflect the wider country”.

Earlier this year he wrote that the BBC could “not carry on as before” and must accept the new technology means it cannot dominate in the way it previously has.
He described the organisation as “woke, pro-Remain, credulously green, anti-market, obsessed with issues connected with ‘diversity’, yet itself not truly diverse at all”.
