You have a choice, here's mine
The BBC fail as a public service broadcaster on so many measures.
I stopped paying the usurious licence fee in the early 2000s, no regrets at all - the biased broadcasting corporation is infested with woke aresholes and much their content has become predictable, preachy, sanctimonious and unwatchable/unlistenable by me. At least James O'Brien and other broadcasters on LBC don't pretend to be unbiased...
The few admittedly high quality documentaries I am missing on release are not worth enduring the other repellent content for. I'll catch them up online in various ways.
Vote with your wallets - stop paying the licence fee, stop using the BBC, it only encourages the precious darlings.
