R.F.Wilson writes from London: Is there actually anyone left out there who watches the BBC abysmal output these days?
Chairman, Lord Patten, can bang on as much as he wants about how wonderful the BBC programmes are but I bet he’ll struggle to name a single decent one if asked.
The Jimmy Savile sex abuse scandal lifted the lid on the goings-on behind the cameras and Newsnight, a programme with no news in it but left-wing propaganda mostly, screwed up with broadcasting false allegations of paedophilia against a Tory grandee, it has become pretty clear that the BBC in its present form has to be put out of its misery.
The Labour party, which owes the BBC the longest spell in power in its history, is terrified at the thought of the socialist broadcasting empire crumbling.
It has lost all credibility and its programmes but any time the Corporation attempts to make something upmarket, it fails miserably. And as for its so-called comedy, well, it’s just beyond criticism really. The thing about public broadcasting is that it should never be forced on people by law, obliging them to pay for it.
George Entwistle, who has stepped down and is now considered a martyr by the left, will get a full year’s salary, 450,000 grand, to compensate for his trauma. A post made earlier today over on Stirring Trouble Internationally- A humorous take on news and current affairs.
