Why do we all have to pay tax for Left wing propaganda?

Labour obviously scared of UKIP if they are resorting to this, but BBC's role is unacceptable.

Interesting logic. Let's imagine the Tories win the 2015 election. They sack all the pinkos and weirdos and install their own puppets in their place so that all BBC broadcasts essentially become adverts for a new status quo which they support.

The worst feature of the BBC imv is that it is not accountable to the people who pay for it.

Not one single member of the Board of Trustees ( formerly Board of Governors ) has EVER been elected by the licence fee payer.
It is therefore a State broadcaster.
But do you really want the State deciding the primary means of UK citizens being entertained and informed? Without the people who pay for the service being in control.

Not for me. It's taxation without representation, and if a random youngster was to knock seven shades of shít out of the shill they didn't choose that is Chris Patten, and I was 5 feet away, there'd be a witness statement saying that CP started it.

None of this stuff about whether it's good or bad, whether the high salaries and DG payoffs are justified, whether there should be 24hour Vatican news or not would merit the slightest debate, if the licence-fee payer was electing the Board members based on their manifestos. There's no point self-flagellating about what you have control over, because if your view is the majority you can vote them out. And if you're in a minority you should direct your ire against your fellow man. That's why accountability to the people who pay is such a wonderful thing.

Licence fee evasion runs at an estimated 2 million households at any one time - I'm a betting man ( aren't we all ) and I'm going for these on average being people on quite low incomes in estates inspectors prefer not to go. Really.

The BBC are liars - they say they are independent of government. They say they are accountable to the licence-fee payer. Neither is true.
Government are liars - they say that the BBC is independent of them. Yet they make every appointment at Board level, renew the Charter, provide the court system to prosecute evasion ( 130,000 fines at Magistrates Courts each year ), and set the licence fee.

The NHS's flagship offering is about health. It makes no such claims about being independent of government.

The BBC's flagship offering right now is this:
6:00 am BREAKFAST
10:00 am SATURDAY KITCHEN
11:30 am NIGEL SLATER'S SIMPLE COOKING

That isn't true - the BBC started in the late 1920s with the bailout of a private consortium that was making a loss. The government that did it was elected in 1924, an election where women didn't have the vote. In addition the 1924 manifestos are online ( thanks to wonders of internet and wikipedia which don't force you to pay for something you have no say over ). There is no mention of State broadcasting in any of the main 3 party manifestos.

It's an example of bailouts, and fear of the free market.

Since then it's never been much of an election issue, and why should it, as whoever gets elected keeps control.

I do think that defenders of the BBC have a right to observe what we might have to pay for television if the licence fee was scrapped. Without the BBC sky would have almost a monopoly of broadcasting, and can you imagine what they would charge then; the £13 per week could easily double.

I agree that it would be really helpful if the BBC was able to be more accountable to its licence fee payers somehow, but I cannot have all the bbc is a communist plot krap.

The BBC is 100% government broadcasting, it's a little bit educational, occasionally informative and if you're over 60 some say it's entertaining. It contains 0% non-government content.
So if you pay, then you are paying £143 a year for no independent content. As a ratio, it doesn't compute as the divisor is zero. The word value has no meaning.

It shouldn't be part of the public sector. No-one ever died from insufficient State television. It should be directly accountable to the people who pay for it, and the value of the licence fee should be set by a Board elected by the customer. Then we'll find out what value the licence-payer puts on it, and the word value will have meaning again.

"The quote about left wing bias is taken from... you'll never guess...oh yes.. The daily Mail"

You utter halfwit.  Are you suggesting he didn't say it just because it was in the Mail?  It's a direct quote you imbecile.  Of all the posters on her you are undoubtedly the most stupid.  That is saying something.

Like it or not JAVA, that spokesman who "admitted" that the B.B.C. was left wing,
was only spouting an opinion, mostly the B.B.C. is pretty fair, but under Blair
their programmeing declined furiously, cookery programmes abounding, refurbishing of houses as a way of accruing more money, in fact anything about money came to the fore, where it was NOT before, I have pointed this out on here before, it should not be the place of the B.B.C. to push the greed motive as they have during the last 14 years.
THATCHER and BLAIR to blame!!!!!!

if the BBC did not have a licence fee we would all be without the BBC.

I prefer life with it as do the vast majority of people in the UK.


So cry, if the licence fee became optional, what % would keep paying it?

And why are you so frightened to give people a choice?

PS try to reply without mentioning sacked dinner ladies and racists

I am very happy to gibe the BBC  choice.

Every election we have a choice and any party can go into an election witha plan to abolish the BBC by making the licence fee voluntary or making the bBC be self funding by adverts or sponsorship etc.

I am absolutely certain that any party planning to abolish the BBC would be wiped out because when it was debated, what we were about to lose would become very clear indeed.

Oh and java, I just love you defending the truth of a Daily Mail story by saying that the Telegraph ran the same stuff but we'll let that pass. The man who said the BBC was biased was passing an opinion. I do not share it; its pretty obvious that the BBC is pretty establishment and very conservative (small "c").

Only real far right wing nutters see the BBC as some sort of communist plot.

"java and far right wing nutters".

Funny how the two go so easily together in the same sentence.

How are you on mr Ricci's 18 million pund bonus?

Are you keen to join me in blaming Greasy for his laxness in sorting out the shocking bank bonus culture?

Thought not.
