Wouldn’t it be loverly?

I used to write for A Tangled Web. I stopped when I made the great mistake of utilising a personal photo of my wife to illustrate a political stance. The avalanche of hostility which met that one post made me realise my opinions were not welcome; so I ceased my contributions. But I still read the posts, especially by the blog’s owner and publisher, David Vance.

Here is David in his normal trenchant mode, which is switched on immediately he even commences thinking about the BBC.

But the point which he makes about our new-found saviours is this:-

They have always been virulently anti-BBC. Wouldn’t it be nice if at least one of their proposals were included within the DUP / Westminster Package. The proposal I am talking about, and which David so eloquently discusses; is this:-

3. FREEZE THEN CUT OR ABOLISH THE TV LICENCE AND REFORM THE BBC The TV licence fee is a highly regressive tax which was designed for a different era and a world of communication that no longer exists. The success of Netflix and Amazon streaming services shows that subscription based media can and does work. An independent Commission should be established to conduct a review of how the BBC is structured and the services it provides and to examine alternative funding models, identify the opportunities for competitive tendering of key services and produce a plan that will either significantly reduce the licence fee or abolish it.

    Mike, like you, David and everyone at the Biased bbc and Is The bbc Biased websites, I hope the DUP make this a non-negotiable requirement for their support.

    Ah, the BBC – “Bum Banditry Compulsory” – maybe that’s why the DUP has it in for them.
    (Ooo, er, missus).

    Reading the stories about Tass and Pravda, I never even considered it as a possiblity, nay I’d have scoffed at the very idea of it and now I look on askance – not so much at the content [NWO liberal guff] – that’s a given but agog at, the enormous apetite there is for people to greedily swallow the fantasy of lies and wallowing in, their cloud 9 feckless gullibility. Of course! and it’s no ones fault, plus; the money will be found, the planet/NHS/welfare state with open borders [FFS!!], and universal lerve……but not all men just some and then not many…………. and all creeds bar one – well two actually.

    The UK-media run as a organ of state propaganda, the only mystery is, whose the boys buggering club actually speaking for, is it on behest of the Berlin Mafia or Riyadh central?

    Interestingly, John Redwood ran a similar piece yesterday on the BBC. monopolistic Badly Biased Communicator.
    He normally gets around 50-100 or so responses depending on the subject. This time he got 210 and all that I read were virulently hostile to this unfettered Guardianista propaganda vehicle.
