    How is that relevant? You don't have to pay for sky in order to watch TV. I do have to pay the license fee even if I have no interest in watching anything paid for by the license fee.

    That isn't what I said at all you've misunderstood. I mostly want the BBC to produce shows of value that would be difficult to produce elsewhere due to commercial pressure. Something like strictly...

    The key word being was. It WAS quality that's the problem. I quite agree with you by the way, it is good to have the BBC as a choice just as long as I can choose not to pay a fee for it if I don't...

    The BBC used to be a great British institution before it became the right on, woke, propaganda mess of the last decade. Seeing it drastically slimmed down- my preference- would be long overdue.
