BBC Consultation – Protecting our BBC…

As you know, the Tories are antagonistic towards the BBC and think it should be reduced to a small rump, handing over much of its excellent output to the private sector. More Mr Murdoch and the Daily Mail in charge!

Can this consultation go on the website too – it closes on 5th November, with a bang, I presume.

If there words start you thinking about how important it is that the BBC remains a strong, in-dependant, unique and world class organisation you may want to get involved further.

The 38 Degrees has a Stand Up for the BBC petition .

They say:

We’re standing up for a strong, vibrant, publicly funded BBC.

The BBC is a great British institution, respected the world over. We don’t want to see it undermined.

This means we must:

  • Protect the BBC’s funding by preserving the licence fee, and the clarity that comes with the current funding model.
  • Help the BBC develop by putting first value for money and quality of service for licence fee payers, not the commercial interests of rival media companies.
  • Ensure the BBC’s independence by preventing politicians from interfering in its day-to-day running, keeping the corporation impartial and independent, working in the best interests of and accountable to the British people.
