I just signed the petition "Save Our BBC" and wanted to ask if you could add your name too.


This campaign means a lot to me and the more support we can get behind it, the better chance we have of succeeding. You can read more and sign the petition here:

Ironic that you post a link to the DT which if you want to see it's full online content you have to pay a subscription fee to get past it's firewall. And try checking what those fees are compared to the BBC licence fee, and what they actually provide. No competition whatsoever. You'd think the DT and Sunday Times, who themselves today published an article claiming the Gov is planning to abolish the licence fee, might have something to gain if this happened. Surely not.

Also worth noting that the free licence fee for the over-75s is a Government funded scheme which the Gov is ending this June...

I watch Netflix and Amazon most even though I pay a largish Sky subscription - I didn't think Globalist Londoners will be the BBC's biggest defenders, I'd have though it would be the regions, which the provision of services for in the future I support strongly even though I rarely watch.


I did love watching Six Nations on the BBC (and it's much better than ITV) but there are moves to put this on Pay per View. Dr Who is now based in Sheffield rather than Cardiff I notice so advertising this area. You don't get many channels advertising the British and Irish regions.


Support enough to sign as what the BBC does isn't done by many and it would be sad to lose.

I don't watch the BBC, nor listen to any of their radio stations, yet am forced to pay for a licence funding media I have no desire to consume. How is this fair? I detest the current govt, but the sooner I no longer have to fund other peoples choice of media consumption, the better.

I pay for Netflix....the BBC sell a lot of stuff to Netflix. People worldwide watch and listen to the BBC and DON'T pay a penny.....so there's the answer - BBC a subscription channel...no ads either- where's the problem? Afraid that the Left cannot continue their brainwashing activities?

A subscription is not necessary. There are several browser extensions that allow you to circumvent paywalls so that you can read a whole raft of newspapers for free.


Best to use the Firefox browser and install Bypass Firewalls. That way you can read about 50 publications from the FT, DT, NYT, Economist, Sydney Morning Herald, Economist, Baltimore Times, Harvard Business Review, Wired etc, etc.

LOL that's ironic when we're discussing funding models for the BBC :)

    • Aria and Dan were again amazing in their quick response to my problem (leaking toilet flush), their excellent workmanship and super politeness.  I have used them several times before and am always impressed. Last but not least,  they charge completely honestly.  Thank you!
    • Fair point. They could then blame themselves rather than older people for apparently ruining their futures.
    • I would suggest the fabric stores around soho.  But if you don’t mind shopping online, I’ve found a couple that might suit what you’re looking for online:   Orange https://www.jamiltonupholstery.co.uk/product/atcham-braid-col-04-orange-cream/?gad_source=1&gclid=CjwKCAjwoPOwBhAeEiwAJuXRh9GWPOUamGa77QNpGdANkK0r7F7y-4uCliLseY-dfUcZDCTMLDAXQRoCU7kQAvD_BwE   Green https://www.jamiltonupholstery.co.uk/product/plain-straight-gimp-braid-col-617-green/?gad_source=1&gclid=CjwKCAjwoPOwBhAeEiwAJuXRh-63bOJYHpbGmACA9iPsRXmwmX8iY5y8Ks6XxDq1lnVLdE8gp-pfjxoCXs4QAvD_BwE   i would also suggest Etsy for things like this.   Hope you find what you’re looking for 😊
    • We live nearby and often chatted with friendly Joe. Sad to see him go, he said he was retiring. Heard it’s going to be a café/coffee shop on the day he left.
