Reader’s Comment: BBC’s revolving left door spins faster with Purnell


In response to David Keighley’s BBC Watch: New Labour stooge takes the sword to Western civilisation, Colonel Mustard wrote:

Purnell was a grubby little nonentity in New Labour. Another over-promoted PPE ex-wonk like Byrne. After New Labour he slithered back into IPPR then took a chance at Mayor of London, but failed. He then hung his hat on a David Miliband leadership, failing there too.

However, he became the overpaid (£295k pa) BBC Director of Strategy in 2013 (with plenty of unsavoury political baggage) and was once BBC Head of Corporate Planning before trying and failing at politics. So the BBC-lefty politician revolving door is alive and well. What this article misses is that the blatant bias of the BBC has become more brazen in step with Purnell’s recent progress through the organisation and he is a creature of Blair with plenty of experience of tainting the apolitical with Fabian dogma.
