If you’re an oik, the BBC needs you


AS PART of the BBC’s ‘diversity drive’, director general Tim Davie has announced that the Corporation is to set targets for the number of members of the working class that it employs, as reported here and here.

The Conservative Woman understands that a committee headed by the Diversity Drive Directorate Director was tasked to implement the strategy. This committee then set up a series of sub-committees involving consultants from several high-profile international consultancies. Their recommendation will lead to the creation of a number of new roles at the Corporation based on their understanding of the British working class. The first is advertised below:
