Betting Market says 67% probability Davie will resign.
The implied probability that Tim Davie will be forced to resign has hit an all time high of 67% following comments from the corporation's former director general Greg Dyke that the BBC has “undermined its own credibility” as it will be viewed as having bowed to government pressure over its decision to stand Gary Lineker down from hosting Match of the Day, .
Trust in the BBC: The BBC is a publicly-funded institution and the public's trust is paramount, any actions that compromise that trust would make Tim Davie's position untenable.
There are also serious issues within the organisation itself, where trust levels amongst staff were believed to be very low ahead of this debacle. A top down edict that has backfired so spectacularly is unlikey to do much as regards the underlying culture at the place.
