The Chair of BAE Systems, Roger Carr, has just been appointed as Vice-Chair of the BBC Trust. It's a position that comes with a lot of prestige, and puts him right at the heart of the organisation.
BAE Systems is Europe's biggest arms company and has armed dictatorships and human rights abusers around the world, including Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Israel. Its chair should not be paid £70,610 a year to 'represent licence fee payers' views.'
Arms industry executives have no place in public service broadcasting.
