Should there be a night of the long knives at S4C?

The BBC report that Tory MPs want a purge of the people responsible for running S4C. They want the entire S4C authority, with the exception of its chairman, to stand down, saying that they believe that members of the governing body are "part of the problem":

Aberconwy MP Guto Bebb told BBC Wales: "Some members of the S4C Authority are more concerned with scoring political points against the coalition government than trying to move S4C forward to a secure future.

"We've come to the conclusion as a group of MPs especially after yesterday's evidence to the Welsh Affairs Select Committee that the S4C authority are part of the problem rather than part of the solution."

I believe that he may have a point and a number of others have said to me that they agree. That is not an anti-S4C statement but concern that the channel's best interests are not being served by the board.

I would be interested in other views.
What you mean is that S4C should be run by government place-men who will carry out the Conlib decimation of the channel without argument.
No I dont mean that at all, nor did I say it.
S4C appear to be a laughing stock; the former S4C CEO has just filed a complaint with the Employment Tribunal, and the 'current'/'resigned' (take-your-pick) chairman is staying on for a wee bit while the board has appointed a temporary chairperson. This is a farce - S4C couldn't come up with a better storyline.
