That's another bit of good news.
No doubt he will get another well paid post somewhere.

He's just demonstrated that he couldn't even run a bath!  Cheesy

He doesn't have to. He's staying at the BBC Sad Sad
He will still receive £150,000 per annum and a pension pot of £6.5M.
Yentob
The BBC really know how to waste our money. He should be sacked and his pension withheld.

The worst aspect for me is the different treatment between Clarkson and Yentob.
I think Yentob's actions in trying to suppress an investigation into Kid's Company should be investigated for possible criminal implications along with his complicity in fraud at Kid's Company. I would like to see him convicted of a crime and sacked from the BBC. Not continuing in his goldplated BBC nonjob with pension.
Fact is he is unemployable outside the BBC.  Angry
