Why The BBC should lose our licence fee

Let us first look at our once universally much admired national institution, the British Broadcasting Corporation.  The last three decades have seen its reputation diminished by the actions of its own employees as a majority of them sought to use its monopoly power and assured revenues for social engineering and the advancement of socialism, equality, diversity, multinationalism, full membership of the European Union, and the march of ugly, expensive and uneconomic wind turbines across our green and pleasant land.  
        It has been increasingly accused of being as dishonest in matters of truth (formal description of Anthropogenic Global Warning freaks as “scientific experts”), corrupt in intellect (paid by the EU to present its unbalanced news and biased opinion), distorted in vision (its corporate view of President Obama’s socialism as sustainable), inefficient in operation (Newsnight’s paedophilia charges broadcast unchecked), grossly overstaffed (monstrously burdened with sclerotic layers of mismanagement), and conspiritorily  egocentric in rewards (such as the reported £354,000 salary for a Head of News).
        MoD watchers cannot resist a smile.  The sensitivity of defence matters is used successfully to protect the MoD from public scrutiny, and with no knowledge of its internal workings the electorate can neither understand nor have grounds to criticise its abysmal operational and financial performance, but the BBC has now provided a frame of reference that facilitates informed criticism.
        The MoD is dishonest in matters of truth (the defeat in Basra represented as a success), corrupt in intellect (believing almost everything promised by BAE Systems), distorted in vision (the Strategic Defence & Security Review [SDSR] divorced from reality), inefficient in operation (£4,500,000,000 wasted on unconvertible Nimrods), grossly overstaffed (forty times the number of procurement personnel used by Israel for the Israelis’ much larger punch), and conspiritorily egocentric in rewards (such as the absurd £168,000 bonus for the clerk who oversaw the excavation of what the Defence Secretary claimed was an embarrassing “black hole” of £37.5 billion, and who recently masterminded the financial disaster of the Typhoon).
