Samira Ahmad should be made the new Chair of BBC Question Time, replacing the retiring David Dimbleby.
Why is this important?
A new chair is needed for BBC Question Time that is in tune with the 21st Century, who is politically neutral and who helps to represent the modern audience. There are already many white, rich, political-establishment-minded men working for the BBC - they are hardly under-represented.
Samira Ahmed has 2 awards for journalism, 28 years in the broadcast news biz, including 11 at Channel 4 News, is currently presenting Newswatch BBC & BBC Front Row and is an honorary fellow of St Edmund Hall, Oxford. She is well qualified to present BBC Question Time.
