Has anyone ever claimed that cane sugar and tea comes from Britain? - so what was the point of the program?Nish Kumar showing a clip from Horrible Histories where Queen Victoria is told her tea and sugar isn't British as the point is made the tea came from India and the sugar from the Caribbean. Therefore "not British."
Same point made by Andrew Neil.Has anyone ever claimed that cane sugar and tea comes from Britain? - so what was the point of the program?
It doesnt seem like very good case being made for a tax funded TV service if this is the best it can do.
The bias over the last year or two has become so evident to me. I have reported it to the BBC several times giving very clear examples but each time they come back with a glib “we are not biassed”. Not only do they not have to work for their income but they also seem to be self-regulating.
Fixed - or am I missing something?The funny thing is, the public hold all the power here.
The BBC could be shut down within a few months, simply down to the public taking totally legal decisions.
Simply have almost everyone stop watching
BBCbroadcast television, and stop paying the licence fee, and that that.
No law broken and the BBC are done for, end of story.
It's simple of course, but as we know you'd never get the bulk of the population to agree to do this.
Reminds me of a stupid ignorant stuck-up female fox hunt rider in the past.The funny thing is that even the most ardent defenders of the BBC keep undermining their case for it continuing to be funded through taxation.
Take Polly Toynbee in last weeks Guardian
"The latest anti-BBC argument is that with binge-watching Netflix, Amazon and the rest, who needs an outdated national broadcaster? The answer is: because most people want British-produced programming. Because arts, music, movies, TV and video gaming are a rare booming British success and the BBC is the industry’s springboard."
If Polly is correct and most people want British produced programming then the BBC will thrive under a subscription funding model - after all she has already pointed out that people are more than happy to subscribe to Netflix, Amazon etc.
The only way the BBC would fail is if Polly is not correct...
Only BBC get it though?Fixed - or am I missing something?
