    If it was Government funded like in some other countries then it wouldn't be able to be impartial anymore.

    The only other alternative is to have it full of adverts like the other channels.

    Frankly, I'd rather pay a bit towards it.

    Is it fairer for those people who don't use the service at all to pay for it then?

    That is how it works in many European Countries to fund public broadcasting. But because there is no specific "TV License" in those, people don't realise it happens.

    I wish people would find out the facts before having a whinge and a moan, but that spoils the argument doesn't it? (and this forum would have half the posts without the grumpy old farts complaining about everything under the sun)

    Do you really believe the BBC is impartial and not under government control.

Should be free for pensioners especially the ones who worked and payed a bit more into the system.

    Could get rid of BBC Alba to save money if the BBC is short. Viewing figures are around 4 until that family from some western isle go away on holiday when it drops to zero.. Actually they are quite fly and put the Glasgow and Edinburgh rugby matches on it to boost the miserly viewing figures. The players speak English, the TMO speaks English, the ref speaks English, pitch side analysts speak English and the commentator speaks Hurdy Gurdy. You used to use the red button to get an English commentary but that's been done away with. We watch it with the sound turned down!

    It's nothing but a government propaganda machine.

    In my defence 9 times out of 10 it does look like I'm listening.
