I'm an atheist right-winger, Nurse. I'm conflicted about the NHS and hate the BBC with a passion if that helps.

Both organisations riddled with socialists and run for the benefit of staff and management rather than customers.

Both organisations whose many faults are camouflaged by past glories.

Both organisations who were once the best in the world, are now nowhere near but now not only still pretend they are the best but try to close down any criticism of them.

If the BBC is so good give people the option wether to pay for it or not. That's when you'll see how good people think it is.
I used to love the channel but apart from the very rare occasion I could easily do without it

Re: The BBC
Few things this country can be proud of these days and The BBC and NHS, for all their faults, are two of them.
Anyone who disagrees should fuck off, read their Daily Mails and fantasise about the 1950s

They need a massive clear-out from middle-management upwards.

Like a lot of our education establishments too.

Breeding grounds for the worst types of liberal drips.

As mentioned, make it a paid for option and scrap the TV licence and spend the money on the NHS by making it part of the direct tax we pay.

Re: The BBC
Once the nation is all fibred up, there will be no need for a (state) mass media, free-to-air organisation; it can just nestle in with the thousands of other channels that broadband can deliver.

Re: The BBC
The BBC is a disgusting state-funded socialist propaganda machine that has no place in a modern democracy.

It should be closed down - or better still, sold to Rupert Murdoch.

Re: The BBC
Dumbing down of programmes like BBC breakfast etc has fucked me off in recent years, as has the brexit slant to pretty much EVERY news item. Maybe its my age or changing politics with age that I find programmes like Question Time excruciatingly difficult to watch, it just doesn't even try to look balanced. Weirdly though I find the daily politics eminently watchable .

Its a shame that the BBC has lost its clout in the sporting arena with the BTs and SKYs around. Their coverage was always top notch. They don't even have the 'shit' darts anymore. Its the grand national, Wimbledon and Clare fucking Balding. Oh, and the boat race of course.

PC has been mentioned. Comedy panel shows having to have one bird on etc takes the piss to be honest.

Because it tries to pander to everyone I can't help thinking the BBC is spreading itself (and its money) too thinly. Is there really a need for BBC Alba BBC Asian network or anything Welsh.

That said, having lived abroad you come back to!realise that whatever they do or whatever the slant or leaning, they do do it well in comparison.

Trying to shoehorn romesh rangaranathan into every fucking programme doesn't endear me to them either

Their football coverage is still of a very high standard but apart from that I don't watch any of their shit output.

Re: The BBC
Sometimes the political correctness annoys me but compared to all the other global news outlets it's streets ahead I've got mates abroad including in the US to listen to it to hear the truth.
As with the NHS it's not perfect but both are World class and we don't have many institutions/companies left these days that we can say that about
