The BBC empire must be decolonised

"One day Britain will have a public service broadcasting commission, using public money to purchase and distribute a range of news and cultural programmes across a range of platforms, on the strict criterion that they are not supplied in the marketplace. It will have no licence fee, no palaces, no unions, no meetings and certainly no 23,000 employees. The only question is whether that body will be called the BBC." —Simon Jenkins

As a UK citizen i hate paying the licence fee as i have to do this whether I watch the BBC or not.

However, fr the money the BBC recive, they do a great job. If They weer to commercialise the service or charge a fee like satelite TV, rather than a licence fee, i think it could achieve een more
