I really do!

Thanks to cangetmad for this meme. I'm not even paying the licence fee, being in Ireland, but I've grown up with the BBC and despite its faults (shoving all the arts programming to a digital channel, for example), I think it's a magnificent institution. I hate the idea of its independence being tampered with - on a very shallow level, as well as a more principled one. Imagine the BBC with ads! Imagine Radio 4 if it had to appeal to market forces! I wouldn't be listening to people going on about Pre-Raphaelitism right now if it did. Hurrah for the BBC, and yah boo sucks to Lord Hutton and the travesty that has been the British Labour Party for nearly a decade.

Perhaps if BBC was Tony's scape for Iraq-Continuing Operation Ill Prepared perhaps
PBR or whatever that is called in the US will walk the plank for Georgie Porgie.
