You missed a bit. I can guarantee that not a penny of it would go to anyone remotely critical of the left leaning establishment bias.

A tax to help the So-Called BBC compete with netflix and amazon....

How would that work?

I dont watch bbc as it does not show anything i want to watch - baking, dancing, cockernees etc etc.

Fuck giving them more money. Force them to compete - allow netflix subs to be removed from license fee. Sack 70% of the So-Called BBC news dept - its shit. Put money into adult drama - use the teams conpanies that netflix use.

In fact, if there was a need to transfer money to a media org then it would be to local papers. These suffer from bbc getting feee money and also were run by idiots who leveraged up - see johnston press.

Funny logic in their thinking.

Eg, internet tax.  Well, everyone uses the internet now.  It wouldn't be like a TV license when it started, or like the radio receiving tax in the early 20th century -- those had slow rates of adoption as the technology grew more capable.  The internet is now so all-pervading that they even assume you've got it to communicate with government, etc.  They could introduce an annual payment but it would be like a poll tax -- and they might as well just raise income taxes by a fraction as at least then it would be a progressive tax and be trivial to collect.

But that's all they can think of -- tax tax tax.  I'd like it if they could think of ways to reduce taxation*.

[* It is amazing.  As an example, the IT revolution has decimated costs of 'organising stuff' -- yet local government (that should have seen massive reductions in costs) has only got more expensive.  The wrong questions are being asked -- they say 'they've cut local government funding by 6% over the last 5 years', I say 'everyone else has managed to cut organisational costs by 90% over the last 30 years, yet councils just keep upping the expenditure']

LAs NHS Education especially.

Ive seen a serious article in The Economist claim that maybe the services provided by government cannot take advantage of digitisation software economies of scale / networks.

Absolute bullshit.

The sectors listed above are massive make work schemes for people. Digitisation is about getting rid of people and concentrating on the work.

Go to hospital and theres people carrying notes around. And losing them.

Or the GP - pointless 10m discussion then nothing. Why not have a machine raking blood pressure and heart rate - you can buy one for 100 that takes heart beat, sends result to ipad, which checks for any heart abnormalities. And its a lot more accurate.

I know this as, after 4 visits to gp playing Guess the unlikely illness - asthma, flu, allergy etc, i bought one fir a relative, ran it - arhythemia - go back and tell them what to do. Thats 4x 100k GPs beaten by a 100£ gadget.

Maybe the So-Called BBC and ukgov need to write their own IP stack, browser and OS?

Otherwise theyll be forced to use untrustworthy software created by private sector outside of the eyes of ukgov?

See all it takes is more tax and then he can give it to state broadcasters of his choosing and hey presto that biased fake news is gone.

I quite like the man on the basis he isn't Treason May or another fkn Blairite, then he goes and ruins it all by speaking.

 

No - the trusted media.

'He will also make the case for a digital top-up to the licence fee, to be paid for by a levy on tech giants and internet service providers, while BBC staff and licence-fee payers could get to elect members of editorial and regional boards - which he says would reduce political influence and empower licence-fee payers.'

Why the fuck should bbc employees appoint themselves to board?

Id also guess that the bulk of bbc tv is watched by oap who get a free license.

 As a license tax payer, i await my appointment to the board where i will lobby for vast cuts, removal of free oap, and sell off all london based assets and move the operation to staffordshire.

There are 3.5m households refusing to fund the So-Called BBC and that number is growing.

At some point they hit 75, get a free licence, and then start voting to sack all the news twats.

This crosses with the bureaucracy thread

Yes, it has become much easier to organise stuff but, because of the very ease, they couldn't stop themselves from expanding the amount of pointless stuff they need to organise.

He is not alone. There seems to be a general idea that the answer to every problem is financial, taxes or fines. I call that idea wrong.

As for fake news. Always been there! It is up to the reader/viewer to be critical of what they are told. The belief in perpetual motion, astrology,and downright nonsense has been with us for eternity. One of the Greek philosophers thought universal literacy might be a bad thing, as people would believe anything they read. Was it Aristotle?:S

I've noticed that Keeley Hawes seems to be in a lot of stuff lately. Does she express the "correct" views on twitter?

Corbyn doesn't want competition. He wants a state broadcaster that will diligently pump out his propaganda. Momentum are simply the other cheek of the political arse to the Tories.

The best thing both parties could suggest is that the So-Called BBC offers a subscription service and those who want it can pay, like those who want to watch Sky have to pay for it. People shouldn't be forced to pay for the So-Called BBC, especially in this day and age when technology could block the So-Called BBC signal to those who are not subscribed.

What they need to do is remove the so called impartiality regulations for TV news so we can have a Fox esq news channel to compete against the equivalent leftwing versions aka BBC Sky C4 ITV.  

But Corbyns idea would surely mean that Diane Abbottopotamus as Home Secretary would have a role in overseeing it.

Fact is youngens go n the internet for their news,so in the future  big broadcasters blasting out libtard propaganda are screwed.

Yup more dangerous than the Tories 100% and they're bad enough. A Labour win with him as PM would be a sign to move assets out of sterling.
