Or even helicopters, that would be a right hook on the chin!

It's not as simple as that as whether you watch it or listen to it or not, you PAY FOR IT, so that is why people are so disappointed that the NATIONAL Broadcaster is behaving in a manner which seems t

The BBC needs to change back to something all British people are proud of. An organisation that used to be held in high esteem by all, both native and foreign. Turn it into a run of the mill private e

The usual load of old shite served up by a staunchly left-wing media outlet, which claims in its title to be “independent”, when in fact it is anything but. Instead, it is in fact far more biased than the organisation it’s reporting on.

It's all part of the advertising budget. If they don't spend it on TV adverts they'll spend it somewhere else so you wont see a cost reduction.

 During the early part of the Crapola Jeremy Vine on prime time Radio 2 had a show all about panic buying.

He was interviewing people for their reasons for panic buying. This was before panic buying had started.

Guess what happened?? Yep everyone coming home from work stopped at the shops just in case. And then the BBC kept reporting on all those stupid people panic buying!

Totally irresponsibility journalism in my view and Jeremy Vine along with the production crew should be held to account.

It didnt stop there all his shows seems to be pointing out how bad life is!

At work we started to turn the radio off during his show then we stopped turning it back on. We have stopped listening to the radio for a couple of months now.

As an alternative opinion, I do regard the BBC as being impartial.

I don't listen to Jeremy Vine but even if I did I probably wouldn't have gone out panic buying. Would all of his listeners done that? What does that say about his listeners?

You must watch the Belgium Broadcasting Company if you really think it is impartial. The BBC is so biased even the newly appointed Director General has warned all staff about their social media posts and the journalists about the need for unbiased reporting of facts.

Seems the brain washing has worked on some.

I have found his approach quite refreshing and would love to have the BBC back to its impartial best.

BBC comedy shows, do they still have them or are you referring to the joke that the BBC have become?

I read that the new boss is going to tackle left-wing bias in BBC comedy shows.

Good luck with that.

Perhaps he will bring back "it ain't half hot mum" or Alf Garnett.

If I remember rightly, Alf always ended up being the loser.

Yes, many interviews of Warren Mitchell where he tells stories of bigots approaching him and telling him that they support Alfs views and how he then explains to them that Alf is the butt of the joke and he is actually attacking the attitudes of those people that have approached him. 

 

Too stupid to realise that the whole aim of the programme is to poke fun at those with prejudiced views.

‘Little Britain’ was the same. In fact, so was ‘Love Thy Neighbour’ again if I remember rightly. If we look back, most comedies were like it.

Trust me, our national broadcasting station is a good match for the BBC when it comes to spinning stories a certain way... Mind you, the private station are not much better, seems like they are all compelled to show just one side of the story. COVID was/is a good example, not one really critical question was to put to any of the so called experts that made a daily appearance in the different news broadcasts.

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

Nothing to do with the BBC, but I was running the line at my son’s U13 football match yesterday. The opposition were from the same club and playing in black. Behind me I heard one of their dads shout “Get your tackles in blacks”. No harm in that of course, but then he follows it up with “Can I say that, or is it racist?” to the bloke standing next to him. “Well I’m of an age when you can say what you like,” came the reply. “Me too,” replies the original shouter (he was in his 30s) “if you don’t like what I say, then take me to Court, haha!”.

So nothing specifically racist towards anyone, but very cringeworthy behaviour nonetheless.

Agree with @pete 100%. I reckon I could lose a million listeners for half that cost. I'd be a bloody bargain!

Are these salaries not backward looking, i.e. what they earned over the previous year? If so, I could probably understand it. If forward looking, then I want my licence fee back!

Thought Esther Rantzen was brilliant when interviewed by the BBC this morning about these salaries. She made a very good point, with class and elegance.

All of the replacement DJ s when the main ones are on holiday are far better for a tenth of the money.

A principled woman apparently - shame she was too busy looking the other way with regards to old Jimmy
