The Yazzmonster

Should we, the unwanted and unloved Indy and Guardian sorts get the right to opt out of the licence fee?

Yes, of course you should. Everyone should have that right: although it would be better expressed as the right to opt in. You know, privatise the BBC and then suggest that those who wish to enjoy its output pay for it.

I\’ll tell you what\’ll be the first thing to disappear though: those appearance payments, those £50 and £100 cheques that you get for appearing on a radio programme. You\’ll be, I wager, less keen to appear at that point anyway.

  1. Christ. You mean that they pay that dim broad?

    Tim adds: They pay pretty much everyone. I got £110 (inc. expenses) for 15 mins on one R4 prog.

  2. “Should we, the unwanted and unloved Indy and Guardian sorts get the right to opt out of the licence fee?”

    Considering the number of years that the Indy and Guardian have been overrepresented in BBC political shows, no.

    It’s always 1 columnist from the “right” and 1 from the Guardian/Sindy, despite the “right” outselling those 10 to 1.
