BBC chairman Gavyn Davies has resigned in the wake of Lord Hutton's criticisms of the corporation's reports. He quit after Lord Hutton said the suggestion in BBC reports that the government "sexed up" its dossier on Iraq's weapons with unreliable intelligence was "unfounded". Lord Hutton also criticised "defective" BBC editorial processes over defence correspondent Andrew Gilligan's broadcasts of the claims on the Today programme.

Anyone been following this? Your thoughts? I have to agree with Hutton on this one. Gilligan should be made unemployed.
