BBC News needs a new Chief Operating Officer, now Charlotte Moore at Content/TV has nicked the old one, Richard Dawkins (no, not that Richard Dawkins).

So someone has written a job advert. I just hope it's not James Harding, Director of News. You'd have thought he'd at least read through a pitch for a top right-hand operative. It's a remarkable confection of grammatical errors, infelicities [my bad - wrong first time round] and general all-round bollocks.

"The Chief Operating Officer will be passionate and excited about BBC News & Current Affairs and the content we are producing and to communicate and transmit this enthusiasm. They will bring the ability to foster constructive and influential working relationships at a senior level, having the experience and gravitas to influence and direct colleagues and peers, without having direct line management authority over them."
