So, John Whittingdale, one of the BBC's sternest critics in parliament, has been made the new Culture Secretary. (A very interesting move by David Cameron that.)
And the increasingly cack-handed BBC has already scored an absolutely idiotic own goal in response.
...some trigger-happy buffoon in the BBC Press Office thought it appropriate, on hearing the news of the new Culture Secretary's appointment, to re-tweet an attack on Mr Whittingdale on the BBC's official Press Office Twitter account.
And, worse, it was an 'off-topic' attack on his social conservatism - thus providing yet more proof, if more proof were needed, that many people at the BBC hold social conservatism in complete and utter contempt.
They then quickly deleted the offending re-tweet.
Another scolding email from Mary Hockaday to BBC staff is probably due, warning them - yet again! - to watch what they tweet and re-tweet lest they damage the BBC's reputation.
Given Mr Whittingdale's appointment it may already be a bit too late for that.
