I tend to think of the BBC in the same way that I think of banks when they were misbehaving badly.
The BBC seems to be desperate for our cash so it can then re-educate us with programmes that espouse the latest woke trends. I won’t go into what the woke trends are (don’t want to upset anyone), but my family and friends don’t see many programming that represents who we are, our values, what we do in life.
Adding a levy is the same as their current model. The BBC doesn’t like the thought of having to create content that people would buy *one little bit*. People would not buy programmes that try and bring in climate change, trans rights, various strands of equality and politics into unrelated programming.
I recently looked in the Archive Section of BBC IPlayer and played the family a couple of David Attenborough films from the 50’s / 60’s. We were spellbound - proper programming with no slant or bias. Just well presented fact.
Plus to add to my rant, I have always been horrified that the BBC via Capita sent poor single mothers to prison for license evasion.
