We the undersigned do not believe the BBC, which is a publicly funded organisation, should proceed with it's ex-Director General George Entwistle's £450,000 payout. Mr Entwistle resigned from this appointment on Saturday 10th November 2012 due to incompetance, lack of leadership and gross ignorance of Newsnight's 2nd November 2012 story on child abuse at North Wales care homes.
