Thread Name: BS: Disgraceful BBC
Subject: RE: BS: Disgraceful BBC
The govt withdrew its support and made the BBC carry the can. As a 75 year-old I haven't claimed the free licence and am happy to pay, better value than most things these days. Disgraceful that BBC has had to carry cost of World Service which is voice of UK that Govt wants world to hear and that it has to subsidize commercial rival Channel 4. Govt would like it to fail so commercial sector run by mediamogul taxdodger donors of tories can benefit. But that's just my prejudice!
