I don't have a problem with that. Although if the BBC went subscription-only I rather doubt there would be much of a BBC left to watch. Given the choice, I wouldn't pay for the BBC in its current form, let alone what it would be like if people had the freedom not to pay for it.
There shouldn't be a TV licence, if people want to view the BBC's output then they choose to pay for it, just like people choose to pay to watch Sky's channels.
That's a good idea, now let's apply that principle to the BBC's funding.
So passports will cost less than they did nine years ago, why are you getting your knickers in twist?
What you believe to be true might be enough evidence for you, it isn't for me, you'll have to do better than that.
So real evidence then, just what you perceive.
@Lynne "So what I await to see is how this Conservative government, that no doubt gets lots of support in all sorts of ways from rich landowners/the land owning aristocracy, how it will take away the subsidies (tax payers' money) from these rich and powerful people." And your evidence for this claim is?
But they are not wholly your assertions are they, they're other people's that you selectively quote, or even only just give the gist. It's standard practice with online forums that when you quote text you then also provide a link to the whole piece. What's so hard to understand about that?
If it is beyond your wit to post links to stories to support your assertions (which I did quite easily earlier today), then there is nothing for me on which to comment.
Without details I can't comment, simple really.
