BBC to be fixed by Labour
The BBC has been accused of having lax standards and of not supporting the
public often enough when complaints arrive on the desks of the independent
Of course the BBC has been at loggerheads with Westminster for years by NOT siding with their idea of security or national interest at all times. Labour
has said many times it felt the BBC wasn't listening - but to whom?
If Labour scraps the governors board and appoints its own quango to oversee the BBC, then the BBC will become an organ of the Westminster spin machine,
used by Blair and other prime ministers to their political advantage.
The BBC should appeal to the public to warn them of the risks of government
led sponsorship and hence censorship of the tv media. The USA is feeling this now
as Washington tries to force its politically correct views on Hollywood film makers.
