They are doing everything in their power to undermine Boris and this government and should be slapped down to size. I have always been proud of the BBC but recently they are almost commiting treason with their interference in politics.
It is called the 'British' broadcasting company but fails to represent the majority of people in this country. The governors of the BBC should be cleared out, sacked and replaced with people who won't use their power to spread propaganda and mischief.
I watch very little on the BBC now. Marge likes 'Silent Witness' on BBC1; I'll watch the occasional scientific programme on BBC4, but that's about it.
We used to watch Question Time, but that is now so obviously left-wing biased it's a joke and not worth the effort.
The one and only advantage of any BBC programme is that there are no annoying adverts. Having said that, they always seem to advertise themselves and their forthcoming programmes, which is just as boring.
Most importantly, and what annoys me the most, is that we are obliged to pay the TV Tax even if we never watch any BBC programmes. That is totally unacceptable, and I have considered doing what apparently many people do these days: just don't pay the licence fee and tell them that you don't, or can't, watch live TV.
I understand that you are not obliged to let their snoopers into your homes, though I believe that can apply for a court order to enter. Even so, with a bit of warning, I could quite easily disconnect the aerial lead from the wall socket and pretend that there never has been one! I suppose I'd also have to hide the two recorder boxes as they'd be a bit of a give away. We have an Amazon Fire stick which, I understand, does not require a TV licence.
