BBC Sport: Reinstate Hugh Porter as cycling commentator.

Hugh Porter, one of the most professional, engaging commentators in world sport, was recently sacked by the BBC simply because of his age. His departure was atributed to Mr Porter wishing to 'move to pastures new', A statement that Mr Porter has denied. This is a disgraceful case of age discrimination and Mr Porter should be reinstated at the earliest opportunity.
