Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailymail.co.uk: “Paul Dacre is offered role as chairman of Ofcom”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Former Daily Mail editor Paul Dacre has been approached by Boris Johnson to become Chairman of Ofcom, in the latest example of Downing Street's determination to shake up the Left-wing establishment.

The attempt to install Mr Dacre at the broadcasting regulator comes as Whitehall mandarins are trying to put the brakes on the Prime Minister's drive to install Charles Moore – a Brexiteer critic of the BBC – as the Corporation's next Chairman.

The Mail on Sunday understands that Mr Dacre, 71, who edited the Daily Mail for 26 years until 2018, was wooed by Mr Johnson over drinks at No 10 earlier this year and was asked to consider succeeding Lord Burns.

He is due to step down imminently, after agreeing to go this year rather than complete his four-year term in 2022.
