Labour Spin TV To Cost More

Labour MP's have voted against the Tory proposal
to freeze the BBC Licence Fee.

It will now rise by another £3.




Two quotes from Sir Michael Lyons,
the head of the BBC Trust, says it all really . . . 

"The Tory plan was a recipe for
curbing the editorial independence of the BBC".

"It is very important that the BBC's horizons do not become
too closely entwined with the political cycle"





G.O.T. rests his case.

The BBC receives a Tax in the licence fee, so let’s throw some of the sunshine that has fallen on the MP's expenses and exposed fraud and corruption at parliament on the BBC executives, and we will see how they are spending Taxpayers money!!!!

BBC bastards

who is there out there that would find a chink in the BBCs' armour and work it and chip away at any corruption that could be brought to light there?

That's fucking right Screech.
We need to see details of the BBC expenses published next. Corrupt as fuck, just like their bed partners, I would imagine.

£3 more. The bastards!

I wouldn't pay it at all, but the wife does worry so...

That's alright, It's just an extra £3 I won't be paying this year.

I seem to recollect that the BBC are given approximately £ 3.4 BILLION of Taxpayers' money every year. Value for money ? If your name is Jonathan Ross I think I can guess the answer. Unbiased reporting Ho, fcuking ho !! With all the left-wing luvvies at the BBC trough I hardly think so.

After the next election, the BBC needs to be broken up and sold as part of the wholesale clean out of the political system. To even attempt to say it's apolitical would be as ludicrous as announcing you have abolished boom and bust.

Having just taken a complaint up to BBC Trust level on the subject of product promotions and poor editorial standards, I have come to regard the BBC as evasive, untruthful, and incompetent. Amongst other things.
