Abolish the BBC TV licence

Especially after trying to stich up pensioners.
Boycott the BBC

I dont see why it should be compulsory to pay for something
you may not watch in the first place.

What is the justification of a bbc tv license ?

Doctor Who
East Enders
Match of the Day

I dont think so

Last week were were thanking them for their service during D-Day, this week we are taking away their TV licences.

Semi-inspired by this thread, I thought I'd give ITV's much hyped new drama 'Wild Bill' a go last night.

A decent enough premise. Rob Lowe. Some shiiithole oop north... What could go wrong?

Apart from the formulaic writing, stereotypical characters, poorly scripts, forgettable acting and low-grade production values, that is.

But hey, at least there were ad breaks, eh.

Needless to say I won't be perched on the edge of my seat next week waiting to find out what happens next.

Nothing touches BBC when it comes to drama.

Exactly. There's always some drama with the BBC. Covering up sexual abuse, paedophile rings, mugging off old people etc. ITV needs to up it's game. At least drown a puppy or something.

Sizz do you at least support stopping the outsourcing of the fee collection?

People moaning about the license fee... do you use BBC News/Sport? Presumably all on here, by definitiion, do or at least have done to a degree....

Plenty of people moaning here about the license fee are probably old BBC era 606 users

Has anyone watched the Panodrama video?

Forget your political views for a moment and watch how they get their “facts”.

It’ll certainly change your view on the BBC

If the Beeb thought subscriptions would make them more money, they would use the model.

The fact they don’t says it all.
