Stop using licence fee for funding entertainment
Whilst I quite enjoy Ross, the way they've behaved here is pretty pathetic. I certainly find it offensive.
It makes me wonder why we are paying £140/year in licence fees to fund "entertainment" on radio/tv? We've got hundreds of entertain radio/tv channels now - with thousands to come in the future via the internet.
Surely the private sector's perfectly capable of doing this without resorting to public funding?
They should either get rid of the licence or just have it for public interest programmes that won't be produced by the private sector.
Alternatively levy UK broadcasters to fund public interest programmes. I wouldn't support government funding as that's too susceptible to political influence.
