BBC

Gutting the BBC has been on the Tory agenda for a long time. Petition against the latest attempt: https://secure.38degrees.org.uk/protect-our-bbc.

Signed earlier today - not convinced the government will pay attention, but it's worth a try.

Obviously I have a bias since I work for them, but it's all getting very depressing. Between what the BBC wants to do to itself (split into BBC Studios and BBC Public Service) and what the Tories want to do to it (make all telly companies things that their mates can be major shareholders of), the cynical amongst us predict that the BBC as we know it won't be here in 10 years time.
