Is It Me or….?

I am willing to accept that I am in a minority. If I bother watching half a dozen BBC1 and BBC2 programmes per week it’s a hellova lot. And ITV’s programming isn’t much better!

For £135.50 pa we are offered a scoopful of dross mixed up with a glut of repeats, and there’s an office full of highly paid clowns at the Beeb who dictate as to what shows we should be watching. If anyone reading this believes BBC programming to be worth the licence fee please tell me!

It annoys me that Jonathan Ross is paid £18million over three years to present his damn awful TV and radio shows. Surely there has to be someone equally, even far better than Mr Ross who would do the shows for a fraction of the contracted amount.

Question. If Jonathan Ross was not contracted to the BBC where would he be working? I doubt very much if ITV would pay him the same fee, so already his options are limited. I think he would die on his feet trying to do a stand-up routine.

My thoughts re Jonathan Ross are duplicated as far as Ann Robinson is concerned, she’s vastly overpaid too!

Now we learn that the BBC are going into the property business, or didn’t you know? It seems the Beeb are moving house from White City London to (of all places, Salford) and those willing to move north will be financially assisted by the BBC courtesy of public money via our licence fees. Anyone willing to move but cannot find a buyer for their property should not be concerned – as Auntie Beeb will purchase the property and hope to sell it at some later time.

With the BBC so willing to plunder our pockets in a lawful manner, maybe it’s high time the corporation stood on its own two feet and relieved us of a financial burden by going commercial. If that were the case, standby for greater control of the purse-strings and a flurry of redundancies. Yes, I think the BBC should go commercial!
