Fair play to BBC old hands. Trustee Richard Ayre (former BBC Controller of Editorial Policy) and David Jordan, current Director Editorial Policy and Standards, won good headlines this morning for a new Code of Conduct that has yet to be written. Their prestidigitation is acclaimed as a "tightening up".

The Yentob problem was that his declaration of personal interests was last written, "discussed" and signed off in 2010, by Mark Thompson. And that, when he started "minding" Kids Company's relationship with BBC News programmes through July into August last year, neither Lord Hall nor James Harding seems to have thought it was odd.
