Geting wiggy with it

I suspect the BBC will be taking a few legal opinions this week. The decision that the Top Gear live show in Norway, on 27 and 28 March, can't go ahead, indicates the pressure is on, and solicitors on all sides will need to reach a way forward.

There's little precedent for taking disciplinary action against the second biggest shareholder of your own company, without effectively breaking up the company, and risking the Corporation's most valuable intellectual property.  Thankfully the impact will be minimal this financial year - the trick for Lord Hall and Tim Davie will be to work with Danny Cohen towards a compromise that limts the damage in the year ahead.

Meanwhile Danny, clearly not Clarkson's biggest fan, spent the weekend distracting himself on Twitter in conversation with Robbie Savage, and watching Liverpool's Steven Gerrard stamp on another footballer, without a hint from anyone that he should be sacked.
