At the moment the UK Government is running a public consultation on the future of the BBC.

An outfit called 38 Degrees has organised its own survey, which then feeds automatically into the Government’s one.

 

According to Wiki, 38 Degrees is an independent British not-for-profit political-activism organisation that campaigns on a wide range of issues. It describes itself as "progressive" and claims to "campaign for fairness, defend rights, promote peace, preserve the planet and deepen democracy in the UK".

Which probably tells us all we need to know!

 

If you enter their survey, you will notice immediately that every section is filled with loaded questions, such as “a BBC where newsnight is riddled with adverts.”

 

The survey only takes a few minutes to fill in, so let’s make sure that the public’s voice is really heard!

Just ignore the request for donations at the end! You should receive a confirmation from the Government soon after.

 

 

 

FOOTNOTE

The survey can only be submitted by those living in the UK

The survey can also be submitted direct to the government at:

    Thanks, Paul. Given them a piece of my mind! Won’t do any good, of course. But doesn’t it make you laugh that, after the success of ‘The Long March through the Institutions’ – the Press, the Police, the Judiciary, the BBC, and so on, these same institutions have never been so distrusted by the public? ‘The Left,’ to use a loose term, have won the battles bur lost the war.

    Paul,

    I would be very nervous about relaying anything via 38 Degrees. It is an organisation that is only ever against something, so how it can call itself ‘progressive’ is a mystery. Its principal focus is to campaign against any and all changes proposed by a Government in which the Conservative Party has a majority or commanding position.

    Far better that your subscribers should comment to the Government direct through ‘www.gov.uk/governmentconsultations@bbc-charter-review’. The consultation closes at 2345 tomorrow 8 Oct 15!

      “Progressive” is an euphemism for “socialist” used by folks who did not want to admit that bent.

    Apologies, the link should read ‘…consultations/bbc-…’ not ‘…consultations@bbc..’.

    I didn’t understand half the questions. I don’t speak the BBC PC language that the questions were written in.

    If you think (correctly) that the BBC is hopelessly biased try Bloomberg. Mr. Bloomberg himself is nutter el supremo on these matters:
