No amount of cajolery, and no attempts at ethical or social seduction, can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred for the Tory Party. So far as I am concerned they are lower than vermin. Aneurin Bevan
I cancelled my TV licence back in December and to tell you the truth I haven't missed the BBC's output at all, not that I was really a heavy consumer in the first place. Never listened to the radio stations unless under duress (Radio 2 argh!), and never a fan of the BBC's entertainment output, or it's news content. It's main appeal to me was BBC4 and that channel is a shadow of its former self and probably not long for this world. I'm not saying the BBC doesn't provide an excellent service to some people, just not for me.KevS wrote:Two things.
With all this talk of right wing comedians, I present an extract from the diaries of Benny Hill:
“Went to showbiz party. Met Jim Davidson, a fine comedian and a gentleman. Talked to all three of them.”
Secondly, mention of Norfolk's own Mr Fry prompts me to reiterate his theory that for people to really appreciate the BBC should switch it off for a month.
But I'd go further.
Erase as much trace of the BBC as you possibly can for a month.
No radio or TV. No iplayer. No website.
Withdraw all BBC shows from streaming services. Close down YouTube Channel and all social media accounts.
Withdraw all BBC DVD's and digital downloads from sale. (a mite tricky, I concede).
Therefore, theoretically, the only BBC product available to people is that what they own already, as well as stuff uploaded to YouTube etc independently.
Then we'll see.
