Sacked because he told Johnson he wanted to apply for the job and that he was going to facilitate his introduction to a millionaire who might help him with his personal finances. The fact that he had donated over £400k to the Tories over the years was neither here nor there apparently!

Rishi Sunak has refused to rule out the appointment of a political figure to replace Sharp at the BBC, PA reports. The agency says the prime minister was unable to offer such a guarantee when speaking to media at the Scottish Tory conference in Glasgow, adding:

`There’s an appointments process that happens for those appointments. I’m not going to prejudge that.`


They`ll just have to make sure their preferred candidate fills in the application form correctly.

The BBC is long dead as a world leading, semi impartial news source. Rishi will pop one of his mates into the job
