image for Irish Bookies offer odds on Chelsea Boss and BBC DG
The revolving door to the managers office turns again

Irish bookmaker Super Paddy are offering punters the chance to bet who will remain longer in their job. The new Chelsea Manager Rafael Benitez or the new BBC Director General Tony Hall.

"We really don't give Rafa much chance of getting to the end of the season." Martin Fitzpatrick of Super Paddy said "And what with Savile and Levison the new DG doesn't stand a hope of lasting a long time either."

Some punters were a bit confused as early reports were that Benitez only had a six week contract. Although it later emerged that he should be in place till the end of the season. Although some Chelsea fans are unimpressed. Former culture secretary and life long Chelsea fan David Mellor told the BBC "He was Liverpool manager and some fans won't like that. Although I welcome him as he comes from Spain he might be able to bring in some nice young spanish boys to the club. Some of them have some really nice young girlfriends which is always a plus for me."

Meanwhile another former Tory minister and Cameron apologist Lord Patten said "The appointment of Mr Hall shows that we are in touch with the people after all he was the man who sang 'Ghost Town'" There followed a short silence while someone told Lord Patten that Terry Hall sung 'Ghost Town' while Tony Hall was a former newsman who used to work closely with Andy Coulson and Rebekka Brooks.

"I still say that the appointment of Mr Hall shows we are going in the right direction." Lord Patten continued. "For a start he doesn't look like anyone who would go near children." At this point the press conference came to a sudden end.

Right now Rafa is 6-1 to lose his job before Tony Hall.
