I wonder how many more attacks on UKIP the BBC will air before the General Election? There seems to be one every few weeks at the moment.
Nigel Farage has attacked the BBC ahead of a mockumentary screened on Sunday night that imagined an apocalyptic future in which the EU has collapsed.
In ‘The Great European Disaster Movie’ the Ukip leader is prime minister and has overseen the deportation of all immigrants to have arrived to the UK in the last ten years.
Adding to the chaos, Islamic State is marching on Vienna and Spain has caused a diplomatic crisis with Britain by cutting off routes to Gibraltar.
I watched a bit of it on iplayer, and found it fairly hard going. Which reminds me that there are rumours that we’ll have to pay for the BBC even if we don’t have TV sets.
Do you want to pay for a service you do not want or require? In the latest move by Tory government and state broadcaster the BBC have colluded to bring in a new “TV Poll Tax” that every single person in the country will end up having to pay regardless of whether you have a TV or watch the BBC or not.
The government and the BBC know that people no longer trust the BBC and see it as a government propaganda broadcaster, and are now dumping the TV Licence fee in their millions. People are sick to the back teeth with spoon fed propaganda passed off as “News” and they know the BBC harks back to time that no longer exists, as the modern generation dump the Telly for iPhones and tablet computers.
That way everybody will pay for anti-UKIP and pro-EU and global warming scaremongering, and of course antismoking propaganda. More here:
Opponents of the licence fee have likened it to a poll tax because every household with a television set has to pay it, even if they rarely or never use BBC services.
Soon it probably be anyone who has any device which can access any BBC content at all. That’ll be anyone with a mobile phone or a computer with an internet connection.
The introduction of a universal flat-rate fee to replace the licence fee is expected to be backed by BBC Director General Lord Halllater today.
It means that everyone in the UK would be forced to pay a levy – regardless of whether they own a television. This is how it will affect you:
The current state of play:
A household watching or recording live television – as it is being broadcast- is required to have a permit to do so. The funds go towards paying for BBC radio, TV and online services. Fee income of £4 billion was recorded for 2013/14.
I wouldn’t mind if the BBC at least made some attempt to be even-handed. But it doesn’t even do that.
