It’s about time parasites got into the 21st century and the enforced tax was abolished.

And now pensioners are going to be pushed into poverty so multimillionaires like Lineker can be paid millions a year.

Sign the petition.

Don’t agree with paying huge amounts to celebs, but why should a pensioner on £30k get a freebie licence when there’s plenty of people working hard to earn less than that still having to pay for a licence. Means test it so those in need get tested, those who can afford it can pay like the rest of us.

Some would say that a pensioner on 30k has "paid in" enough over the years to allow themselves the right not to tune in to a dinosaur of a "public service" without fear of prosecution and a possible criminal record... just saying like

£1.7M to Lineker is obscene for s public service broadcaster. The BBC should support emerging broadcasting talent. Agree with means testing for things like this and the winter fuel allowance but the old age pension is not a great deal to live on so the means testing has to be appropriate.

Agree with all this, I just feel it’s unfair that pensioners who could be on £50k per year get the same perks as those on £6k or £7k. Needs to be targeted.

The technology exists to make the BBC subscription only.

No need for a licence fee then. If you want to watch it you can subscribe directly. Easier all round.

Pain or damage don't end the world. Or despair, or f*cking beatings. The world ends when you're dead. Until then, you got more punishment in store. Stand it like a man... and give some back.

I like the idea but what about BBC radio?

You can take down the FM and DAB and have internet only but can you imagine the chaos for Car drivers and the like?

The licence fee is a farce though, aren't they launching a UKTV Netflix type thing with all the repeats from BBC and ITV? That's more than half the current TV schedule!

If it's a public sector pension, they've paid in nowhere near enough for their pension.

I used to love the BBC, but now find its continual PC propaganda jarring. If you doubt the latter then listen to the World Service in the early hours. Too few of the journalists are interested in straightforward reportage, as opposed to opinion formation. I'd like to see the Corporation downsized with a shake-out of most of the high earners,

Public sector workers pensions are an unsustainable drain on the taxpayer and it does look like a big ponzi scheme.

Why would that surprise you? Pensioners constitute the core customer demographic for the publications you have in mind.

With a slight jig Tramp becomes Trump, and rather like him you tend to come out with the first thing that comes into your head.
