State broadcasting organisations tend to be found in totalitarian societies. The are not appropriate in a liberal democracy.
It is absurd for the public to fund a media organisation like the BBC that generates a constant stream of soft left wing propaganda. I don't want my money to be used to produce biased material I disagree with. The BBC should be funded by people who enjoy its message and who are willing to pay for it. I should not be threatened with jail for refusing to pay for a media organisation I disagree with.
The BBC propaganda machine has gone into overdrive recently and is certainly no friend of the new government. Cut the funding now while you still have a large portion of public goodwill and you can use the money to pay for a tax break. Leave the BBC intact and it will rise again even stronger with the next Labour government.
