The news that Andrew Neil looks set to return to the BBC with an enhanced role, with Tim Davie highlighting his importance by talking to him on Zoom on his second day in the job, is a good sign.
Mr Davie's prompt call stands in marked contrast to the previous BBC regime which, according to the Daily Telegraph, didn't contact him even once after his programme was taken off air.
The downside, of course, is that Andrew might have to tone down his barbed remarks about the Corporation again.
A constructive suggestion: How about moving Newsnight to 8pm and replacing Emily Maitlis with Andrew Neil?
And why not lure back Giles Dilnot in place of Lewis Goodall too?
