1:19 pm today was the exact mid point from when the result that the Great British public had decided to leave the EU and the time 11pm March 29th 2019 that Democracy will be delivered.

Happy days.

I’d add kids’ channels and BBC4 to that lot.

I can’t somehow imagine the Brains’ Trust on this thread watching top drawer foreign drama on a Saturday night. Fakkin’ sub-titles!

You could double the licence fee and the BBC would still be fantastic value.

If we’re worried about saving public money, scrap the Department for Exiting the EU. It literally has no responsibilities at all now.


I’m sure people using food banks and sitting in the cold would happily double the fee and pay £25 a month for BBC while Chris Evans and Gary Lineker earn nearly £2m a year each for doing very little. Yet another gravy train at the expense of the people.

Again, no new material so making up an argument.

What I don't like about the BBC is that it can no longer compete to bring us the great sporting events. Which isn't its fault of course - it's the @holes at Sky predominantly who somehow persuade people to pay well over £1,000 per year just to watch tv. But the FA Cup should absolutely be on BBC. And test match cricket. It's just how life should be.

Well where’s the great value? It’s a tv licence fee where the majority of people already pay a subscription. 99% of what’s on bbc is uttter crap but they force people to pay a fee anyway whilst paying ludicrous wages. It’s another outdated organisation which some of you seem obsessed with.

It’s a tv license fee not a radio fee but no I don’t listen to bbc radio, I follow bbc on twitter for news updates as I do many many other news stations free of charge. Fa Cup is probably the only time I ever watch bbc these days. I have a good job I can afford it, to make people pay a fee for it that may not be as fortunate as us is criminal in my eyes.

It funds the BBC, that includes its radio and online output. And just cos you claim not to use it, millions do across all its platforms. It’s one of this country’s greatest institutions.

The Beeb has clearly been fantastic in the past but it’s nosedived in recent times in a lot of areas, purely because it’s utterly terrified to take any risks that’ll upset someone somewhere.

I don’t disagree with that. It’s because it’s beem threatened, browbeaten and used as a political football by politicians of all hues in recent years. It needs to be left alone to do what it does.

There's definitely some mileage in this, but it also makes the accusations of bias even more bizarre.

No. Millions do not not use the BBC. It’s ubiquitous and pretty much everyone uses it daily, whether they care to admit it or not.

You are a philistine and a fool.

Have you stopped to consider the people who can't afford subscriptions to Sky at £40 - £80 a month?

The licence fee is £12.55 per month.

Due to its funding model being subject to political interference.

Time to protect the institution from politicians.

I’m sorry but you’re wrong. You don’t need a license fee for online or radio so the fee applies to tv alone. There’s many people out there that don’t watch the bbc.

The nature, science and history documentaries are still fantastic and they’ll continue to lead the world with them i think. But in a general sense they need to be allowed to take risks and allow content to grow.
