According to the Guardian Online, Lord Patten is expected to be appointed as the next Chairman of the BBC Trust.

The Guardian online wrote:

Lord Patten's pitch to win the job of BBC Trust chairman was simple give me the job and I will stand up to both the government of the day and the organisation itself, if necessary.

It was exactly what the culture secretary, Jeremy Hunt, wanted to hear evidence of strong-minded independence, which would allow him to say "this is not a political appointment" even though Patten is a former Conservative cabinet minister.


Apparently, the decision now rests with David Cameron who will decide next week.
