Introduce BBC Pay Cap at £100k
Following the announcement of BBC presenter wages it is clear that far too many people at the BBC are earning extortionate salaries. Salaries which you, the British taxpayer, are forced to pay through your TV licence. £15,000 a night for Gary Lineker's hotels? £2.2m a year for Chris Evans? £450k for Claudia Winkleman? This is money which could be better spent through a tax and used in struggling front-line services such as the NHS, fire departments or schools. Women at the BBC should be paid the same as the men, though this should not be achieved through pay increases. A pay cap should be introduced to reduce the astronomical wages that ALL BBC staff are on and to align pay across genders. At the same time as a cap is introduced, a thorough review should be conducted into spending, wages of all employees at the BBC, and the appropriate cost the public should pay for their TV licence. This is your money, they are stealing it. Take back some control.

The BBC should have its licence fee revoked
Due to the perceived: continued anti-democratic support and with a hidden political agenda that is in conflict with the British public undermining of British culture and values "inability" or unwillingness to uncover child abuse crimes through countless translations and the pointless "world service" which the UK licence fee holders must pay for acting with unfair commercial advantage by taxing the British people - the BBC no longer represents the will of the British people and no longer represents Britain. Therefore, as the BBC no longer supports the British people, the British people should no longer support the BBC. The BBC should lose its unfair licence fee advantage and should stand on its own feet within a highly commercial environment. The British public should not be subject to unfair tax.

Gary Sparrow to be held to account for his crimes on the BBC sitcom Goodnight Sweetheart
For six series, Gary Sparrow (Nicholas Lyndhurst) not only committed adultery on his poor wife Yvonne but was also guilty of a number of serious crimes. From counterfeiting money to copyright theft (he used to steal songs by The Beatles and pass them off as his own during 1940s pub knees-ups), Gary also posed as a British spy, had undue influence over a member of the British constabulary - PC Reg Deadman - and got married, again. Yet, perhaps his biggest sin was failing to introduce some of the potentially life-saving breakthroughs in science and technology that could have improved the lives of so many in Britain. From medical care to other advancements in the industrial world - he could have saved millions. He also could have had a positive effect on the Second World War and brought about a more positive resolution. I would therefore like to see him held to account for his crimes in the upcoming one-off special. Perhaps the episode could take place in some sort of futuristic court for time-travellers. That way, the programme makers could incorporate clips from old episodes, thus reducing the need for new material. Or the presence of his cretinous best mate, Ron.

Please don't remove the recipes archive from BBC.co.uk
The BBC have announced today they're going to remove the archived recipes from their website. This means thousands of opportunities to inspire cooks, young and old, will be lost. And more and more people will turn to freezer ready meals and junk food instead of healthier homemade alternatives. Please don't do this! This is part of Britain's food and cultural history!
