    Patten lost his seat in Parliament, and was pathetic in Hongkong. In the current BBC crisis, he has confirmed his inadequacy .
    His job should go to David Attenborough, who was destined for the very top at the BBC when he chose a life in the outdoors. He is probably the only person in the world capable of doing the job, and by now he may have had enough fresh air. He also enjoys the trust of the public.
    There are plenty of good people in the BBC, but they are outnumbered by the sinister nonentities who inhabit the shadows and are only interested in their wretched pension-pots. Hence the need for an Avenging Angel: anything less will be overwhelmed by the toxic environment.
    Best wishes.

    Much as I admire Sir David, who has been my inspiration since the first Zoo Quest, he should be allowed to relax a bit now.

    At 86 with mobility problems, he's already done far more than his fair share, and the onerous task of dragging the BBC management structure into this century shouldn't be put on his shoulders.
