Cambridge student organ Varsity describes alumna Rona Fairhead, Chairman of the BBC Trust and anointed chair of the first BBC unitary boad, as "an effusive figurehead and advocate of the organisation, about which she waxes lyrical....a poised and commanding presence, clearly well-versed in responding to journalists’ questions."

It shows democracy working.”
