Re: Exit Polls

I understand that one of the DUP requirements to support TM is for the TV Licence to be scrapped - sounds good to me.

If the BBC itself were scrapped, I, for one, wouldn't miss it.

This is just small beer, the real stuff needs to be around the negotiation for getting us out of the EU

Re: Exit Polls

What gets me is that numerous media sources were continually telling the PM that she had NO Mandate from the electorate....that she had never been elected and now the same media sources are slating her for coming to the decisions that she did.
She cannot win, heck she can't even draw. Her party need to get behind her and support her to the hilt, but do you think they will? I very much doubt it. They are all out for themselves rather than the good of the UK.

Another interesting bit of info(don't know where I saw it...but it was online) said that JC Juncker 'encouraged'the PM to call an election...so the cynical side of me wonders what skullduggery was afoot, and did the EU (in some way) influence the election...though I have no evidence of this, it DOES make me wonder.

Now, that IS gloating Jim.
I think TV licences are the least of our worries right now.

Re: Exit Polls

While the BBC gets the money from the licence, but the licence fee is actually a tax levied on the installation of receiving equipment.
So even if you proved you never watched the BBC you still are legally required to have a licence for your receiving equipment.
That you are over 85 and are not required to pay is of little relevance.(being old has to have some compensations)
As for the BBC making better programs, well that is debatable. Their programs are a little like the 'Curates Egg'.
They have made good programs in the past, but they seem to be on a slippery downward slope.

It is known as 'The Peter Principle'...people rise to the level of their incompetence.
He was fine as a local councillor, but as an MP he just doesn't cut it.
However,Accyman nailed it.
The voters in Hyndburn will vote for anybody/anything as long as it travels under a Labour banner.
