I want the BBC to be independent again.

Tony Bliar brought the BBC "under control" after they helped expose his lies in 2003. Since then they have been blatantly more positive about whoever was in government.

(A good demonstration of this was how they have treated Brexit. They have treated the government and its friends as if they are the only ones with a rational argument.)

We need to have this fixed. The BBC used to be famous for its accuracy and independence. While they are still miles ahead of Sky and what we hear of the US media, they are still far less than they were.

Keep the licence fees, with appropriate exceptions and get it out of the hands of whoever misled the public most effectively last election. Entertainment is not their only function. They are supposed to educate and inform as well. It tends to only inform us of what the government wants us to know,
