In response to David Keighley: BBC Watch: As Grade joins criticism over Sir Cliff, will heads start to roll?, tracyhodgkins wrote:

One of the many vile outcomes of that dreadful day in 2014 is the number of those hideous examples of humanity who have since been promoted. Gary Smith, Fran Unsworth and Dan Johnson have all received significant boosts to their careers off the back of attempting to publicly destroy an innocent man. In my view there should not be resignations, because that would mean these reptiles, with apologies to snakes and such for the insult, would have a choice in the matter. The Culture Secretary should have the guts to step in and sack them for their actions and for misappropriating public money in having the bare-faced nerve to defend what they did in court. Make no mistake about it, the BBC has hated Sir Cliff Richard for years. What they did to him in 2014 was an act of malicious spite, the result of which he will have to live with for the rest of his life.
