Abolish the tv licence. For years we've been paying a license fee just for the bbc when other tv networks are able to compete with each other by using other sources of income. I watch every day as licence fee payers money is wasted on stupid programs such as bargain hunt and pointless where the prizes are pittance compared to ITV's Dickinson's really deal, tenable, tipping point and the chaser give away thousands every day. In addition to that we're stuck with the same old drivel on a friday night with programmes such as casualty. I also believe the bbc news is always persecuting our government and the royal family. It is time for change. Either ditch the licence fee or become a subscription channel but do it in line with other subscription providers such as netflix who charge much less for an annual subscription than the cost of a tv licence. I need to mention also that pensioners have to pay for the privilege of a tv licence when the state pension is a paltry £8000 a year compared to other European nations such as Germany whose pension rate is more that triple that. The tv licence is outdated and criminal in itself.
