    If you knew the BBC you would know its not only 'cool' by 100% accurate. Am I being censored for speaking the truth?


    AND I am not politically correct either

    As far as know, decriminalization of streaming will be announced soon in most EU countries, some already allow it. I don't know how is BBC funded but suppose it's something like "National Information Service" is here and most of EU. Here, they collect money for it together with electricity bills. It's compulsory and only registered social security cases and ones that can prove they do not have a TV set are exempt. There's only two channels and as a news service partially funded by government are visibly biased. Last two governments run elections with the promise to stop requiring payments but only now in their mid term are stopping that practice shifting the funding thru national budget but that's also coming from our pockets. I don't know about BBC but this one would go down the drain same moment that funding is stopped and it had to go commercial.
    I do not have much chance to watch BBC other than some news on internet but BBC used to be an institution from which people from oppressed countries could find real truth. When I was a kid we used to listen to BBC and VOA and because it was a communist country it was highly illegal. It wasn't until early '70s that news here started quoting from and running some news on TV.

    BBC is funded out of our pockets. A TV licence is issued once a year at an exorbitant price and the money goes to the BBC (allegedly) to run a commercial free broadcasting service. However, it is very left wing but run by fat cats execs who line their pockets by demanding expensive contracts then getting paid off to move on. BBC spent £6 billion of our money last year paying off top execs. They then waste millions on ethnic and political rubbish and deliberately employ racial tactics to employ people of - shall we say none straight and none white people. They are a very nasty organisation and everyone seems scared to bring them down. The Govt should make it a commercial station, answerable to shareholders.

    Yeah, old story about governments and fat cats as you aptly put it, they would do anything to keep glued to their chairs. Of course somebody has to pay for it and that's people, the tax payers. The only thing is that it's almost unbelievable something like that could happen to an institution like BBC. Where does that leave similar services in countries like Iran or Albania ?
