BBC destroys licence payers trust by shelling out obscene money to convince MPs and the public that they are worth paying for, in a time when people are struggling to afford to eat.
British licence payers at furious at the recent discovery that the BCC has blown almost £300,000 of their money on a PR chief to promote the continuation of the TV licence.
While over 75’s have had their free licences removed and at a time when the UK is in an economic spiral, the news that the BBC has chosen to shell out such an enormous amount on Public Relations spin to encourage people that the licence fee is still a good idea is an exceptional misuse of public money.
This desperate bid to save the TV licence fee is an afront to the trust that the British public put in the BBC to use their finances for the better quality of broadcasting that is received.
The new PR executive will answer directly to the BBC’s director-general, Tim Davie, and will have the role of lobbying MP’s to ensure that the licence fee and additional government funding is not pulled from the corporation.
Speaking with the Express Online, one licence payer wrote, “If the viewers love the BBC so much, the corporation has no need for a PR executive.”
Another exasperated viewer said, “Convincing the licence payer is more important than hobnobbing with MPs. If we refuse to buy a licence, the BBC will lose their income.”
