    BBC used to represent the British people, but sadly it now represents lies and diversity.

    No

    There should be no government funded media, period…

    It would be even better for government to finally DEFUND the darn thing.

    NO!

    The government of the day should get rid of the licence fee

  7. @reeling-in

    January 27, 2024 at 10:08 am

    The poll tax/license fee should be abolished whatever!

  8. @El.Cid17

    January 27, 2024 at 10:08 am

    The government should cut it loose, and scrap the licence fee, and they can choose who they like.

    This argument has been going round in circles for 20 years or more.

    Probably orbiting the elephant in the room!

    How about we don't have gov put someone in the chair and the public just don't pay for it and bbc goes it's own way just a intellectual thought.

    What do you expect?? Can the licence funding scam, keep the news and non fiction channels as PBS.

  12. @ruthcollins2841

    January 27, 2024 at 10:08 am

    Wouldn't make any difference as they'd only hire a person who is probably corrupt.

    "Yes. We will put our man Tory in there and it will no longer be biased…common sense for the British people…" 🤦‍♂

    One might wish to ask Gary Lineker who he thinks should appoint the Chair of the BBC? No doubt Gary Lineker thinks he should or people equally mentally deranged, sel-interested, out of touch, politically motivated, hypocritical, and disingenuous, for example, BBC employees. What is it about democracy that people like Gary Lineker hate and despise so very much? They don't so much have a problem with democracy what they hate and despise is the people that vote in elections. In Gary Lineker's case, especially football fans, and even more so England fans. To be fair to Gary Lineker being employed by a corporate cult such as the BBC for as long as he has will inevitably cause serious mental issues, such as self-hatred, delusions of grandeur, a vast and expanding disconnect with common humanity, authoritarian tendencies, to say the least, and a tendency to habitually self gratify oneself into a boss-eyed frenzy, preferably in public, become all but inevitable. I have little doubt that if it were not for his time at The BBC and being a top-paid sports star for so long, poor old Gary Lineker would be almost normal. So normal that hardly anyone would be remotely interested in anything about him other than his comically protruding ears.

    No, because the BBC should be privatized.

    Gb news has hit the big three again on their topics today. Harry and Meghan, migrants and the bbc

    Impartial Director General but not Impartial presenters Gary, if they were chosen by a Labour government Gary would be very quiet me thinks. How can anyone who isnt left leaning possibly survive in an openly left wing propagandist corporation that is taxing the British public?

  18. @adrianrouse5148

    January 27, 2024 at 10:08 am

    No the BBC has to be unbiased. Labour would choose there candidate the conservatives would choose there person.

  19. @jezzamobile

    January 27, 2024 at 10:08 am

    It would only be relevant if there was any difference between the 2 electable parties on anything that matters. They all live in Islington (so to speak), same as the media careerists.

  20. @michaelwalsh7537

    January 27, 2024 at 10:08 am

    No the government cannot be trusted at all !!

  21. @janb4876

    January 27, 2024 at 10:08 am

    No the people who pay the ridiculous license should choose him/her.

  22. @Carol-tz3up

    January 27, 2024 at 10:08 am

    I believe defunded the BBC and they can do whatever they want so long I don’t of to pay I distrust the BBC and theirs clones anyway

  23. @rogerwilson6367

    January 27, 2024 at 10:08 am

    The BBC should not even exist.

  24. @jamiesoden7877

    January 27, 2024 at 10:08 am

    No

  25. @Adamb87

    January 27, 2024 at 10:08 am

    Put a citizen's assembly in charge of the BBC, owned and operated by the people

  26. @strawberryfieldsforever3308

    January 27, 2024 at 10:08 am

    bbc should be subscription only..i feel sorry for anyone dumb enough to actually still be buying a tv licence

  27. @generaldreedle2801

    January 27, 2024 at 10:08 am

    If a lefty was in charge there wouldn’t be any fuss at all.

  28. @oldshiny3012

    January 27, 2024 at 10:08 am

    yes its publicly owned and paid for or just sell it off and end the endless bickering we are all going to suffer from

  29. @SirJimmySavileOBEKCSG
