Chris Patten chaired the BBC Trust, the governing body of the British Broadcasting Corporation until his resignation on grounds of ill health on 6 May 2014.
Patten accused of a cover-up on BBC Savile probe
Former Tory chairman takes new job advising Holy See on how to handle press weeks after quitting BBC for health reasons…a high-level committee to advise Pope Francis on media strategy.
The appointment is sure to cause surprise since Patten stood down as BBC chairman scarcely two months ago, after heart surgery, saying he needed to reduce the range of roles he held. What is particularly striking about his latest job is that it should come so soon after his departure from an institution that has come under withering fire for its failure to deal openly and thoroughly with accusations of sex abuse.

A DEPUTY head teacher at a £4,000-a-year Catholic school plagued by a “terrible history” of child abuse was charged with offences related to “child porn”.
Allot, 39, was charged with possessing, showing and making indecent images of children as well as possessing extreme pornography
The former Tory councillor has been a teacher at St Benedict’s since 2004.
He left for a year in 2011 to work as a research associate for a project on the Prime Minister’s “Big Society” initiative and Catholic social teaching at Cambridge University.
In 2011 it was revealed that St Benedict’s, then run by Ealing Abbey monks, was linked to 21 sexual attacks dating back to 1970.
Father David Pearce, the former head of the junior school, was jailed for eight years in 2009 after he was convicted for of abusing five boys over 36 years.
Four victims were under 14.
Wanted priest, Father Lawrence Soper, has been missing since allegations he had also abused pupils emerged.
Prior sexual abuse at the school…
In October 2009, Dom David Pearce, a monk of Ealing Abbey and former headmaster of the Junior School, was jailed for eight years, subsequently reduced to five years, for sexual abuse offences at the school in the period from 1972 – 1992 and for one further offence in 2007 after he had ceased to work in the school.
In March 2011 Dom Laurence Soper, the Abbot of Ealing Abbey during the 1990s, was arrested on child abuse charges relating to the period when he was a teacher at, and the bursar of, St Benedict’s School; it was reported in October 2011 that he had failed to answer bail and was being sought by the police.
In the light of these matters, and other alleged but unproven offences, the Abbot commissioned a report to be prepared by Lord Carlile of Berriew with a view to making recommendations on the School’s governance. As a result of the changes made the Independent Schools Inspectorate said in its 2013 inspection report that the pastoral care at St Benedict’s was excellent.
In October 2011 the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith ordered its own enquiry into the same matters, to be conducted by Bishop John Arnold.
Lord Carlile & Janner
As a young reporter, I was given letters that might have helped make a case against the MP for child abuse
The establishment, in the shape of his fellow MPs, men such as Labour’s Keith Vaz, Tory David Ashby and the then Lib Dem MP now Lord Carlile, closed ranks.
Carlile played a prominent part, describing Janner as a man of “integrity” and “determination”. Carlile should have known Janner fairly well.
They were both MPs, both QCs, both members of Friends of Israel, both patrons of UK lawyers for Israel.
They appear still to both be patrons of the Friends of Israel Educational Foundation. They were regulars on the same parliamentary committees dealing with legal affairs. They were both to leave the Commons at the same time and both to join the Lords only slightly apart.
Carlile shared a small Commons office with Cyril Smith for many years.
Carlile’s mistress and eventual wife was a senior legal adviser to the Director of Public Prosecutions. Cosy world, Westminster, it it not?

Carlile went on to be a stunningly illiberal “Independent” Reviewer of anti-terror legislation, where he demonstrated his independence by agreeing to absolutely everything the security services told him. 42 day detention with no charge? No problem. In fact there was no period of detention without charge posited so extreme that Carlile did not support it. Secret courts hearing intelligence evidence the defence were not allowed to see? Fine by Carlile. Control orders? Great. He is a fantastic bastion, protecting the public, is Carlile.
Even better, of course, at protecting his associates.
