Injecting heroin into your eyeball will be much more enjoyable and might fee much much less. ) Making the licence price obligatory is, and continually has been, for my part, a grave mistake. It breeds complacency, conceitedness and a ‘fuck you’ mentality which permeates the BBC at each point. A wonderful ninety eight in line with cent of this licence cost is going to paying the salaries of simply 3 of its ‘stars’,87 and this simply doesn't appear correct to me. In 2014, the hot BBC places of work at Salford spent billion kilos on ‘ethnic-friendly’ staples. is that this a great use of public funds? completely no longer. So what should still we now have as a substitute? I recommend a voluntary licence expense of twenty thousand kilos each year. while i've got floated this concept earlier than to a couple broadcasters i do know they've got expressed cynicism. in fact now not everyone is voluntarily going to pay twenty thousand kilos once they can obtain the very same carrier for not anything. yet a few humans may. And it additionally may perhaps . . . simply may . . . enhance the standard of the programmes themselves.
