Like Pigs On Strings



The government control over the mainstream broadcast media is exerted by the simplest of means. Money.

Over 300 pigs at the BBC earn more than £100,000 each and the backbone-free waste of skin Mark Thompson gets an eye watering £817,000. Naturally, they would not wish to lose their trough, so the threat of reducing or removing the licence fee is sufficient to compell the piggies to toe the government line. They'd find it harder to enjoy the same level of pay and privilege in a purely commercial environment.

On the other side of the fence the commercial channels are terrified of havingto share their advertising revenues with the big beast that is the BBC, and so they offer fuck all resistance to the governmnet line either.

That is why you have to go outside of these corrupt and fearful purveyors of propaganda dressed up as news if you want to know what is happening rather than what the government want to tell you is happening.

Very depressing but true, and indeed its getting worse by the day. The lack of information re the Icelandic Prime Minister is typical. However there must come a time when even the greediest must see the worm is turning and they must think very carefully about which side of the fence they sit.

But it is all only too right.

Why is anyone surprised at the level of overmaning? Anything to do with public money is like Topsy it just growed and growed. Years ago the townhall without annexes, extensions etc used to run everything motor taxation,driving licences, the water business run from the same place.not a lot of call for social workers then as people went to work to feed their kids so I have no idea about them.
Now look at it, bloated huge offices full of overpaid underworked time servers waiting for early retirement (stress related) on a full salary pension courtesy of us mugs.
Same with the BBC never used to see a news reader many years ago all voice over not now, no way. Never mind the twats in London at least two of them, are they called wankers or something besides, over to you Isobelle and thank you very much indeed, sly wink.
Then there are the regional parasites same again, a fucking weather girl if you don't mind I am not a troglodite I also have windows so I know what the fucking weather is like where I live. Christ knows what she is paid but I have a good idea what her qualifications are at the audition.
Sack the lot of them, start again without my tax money keeping the twats in a manner I wouldn't mind getting accustomed to.

I saw some bollocks on the tv this week about how the public apparently love the bbc, and would rather pay the licence fee than have another biased channell.
I cannot remember who the guy was, but thought to myself that he must work for the bbc, or he is a fucking headcase

The bbc are just a fucking waste of our money, and i hate the fact that i have to pay for the condascending PC shit. And the taxi's that they use to run their families around at our expense. Thefact that these wankers 'earn' so much by making me pay for some shit i never wanted just makes my blood boil.

it's either banned or compulsory said...

I don't give a toss about how much of your money the BBC wastes, you mugs; I chucked out my telly years ago and so don't pay the telly tax.
I do enjoy reading the threatening but meaningless begging letters though ( before shredding them, unanswered ).

Arize Citizens ! You have nothing to lose but your " I'm A Naked Nonentity ".
