ABSTRACT
BBC Trust chairman Lord Patten, 68, looked unsettled in a Sky TV interview about the Savile sex scandal last night. Why did the Prime Minister pick him to oversee the Corporation? After the 'wet' former Tory MP lost his Bath seat 20 years ago, he became our governor in Hong Kong. His assistant was ambitious politico Ed Llewellyn. When Patten became European Commissioner, Llewellyn became his chef de cabinet. Now Old Etonian Llewellyn, 48, is David Cameron's chief of staff. Well placed to do his old boss a favour, no? Piccolo mondo!
