Despite its relentless attack on anything approaching intelligent or fringe opinion many of the chattering classes still stand by the BBC. Yet why? I never hear why? There is no reason why?
It’s like meeting the childhood crush of 30 years ago and not seeing they are not the same person and that you are different and the world is different. All we really require is a cheap BBC say BBC2 and BBC4 and maybe some fringe radio. This need not cost poor people £3 a week. The other stuff will still be done as it is commercial television.
It is interesting the Govt retains this vast edifice of News whilst stripping away the rest. The first thing that should go is BBC News. Hard to accept state propaganda paid for disproportionately by those who suffer from the neo Liberal state.
