I have never watched anything on the BBC since Dirty Den murdered a German cabbie in real life.Sometimes when bored I look at the website splash page to see what is going on in the World.Apparently "BBC stars join appeal to find eggheads photo left on a bus". You could not make up that front page news.

You're a good man, SJR. Pity others don't share your laudable morality.

The BBC is biased and is crap.    Even the constant repeats are crap.    As for that Lineker crisp eating creature he is crap.

I think for the latter two,you'd have to check to know and also watch ITV.

Wow that was a cavalry charge of the best anonymous minds on Manx Forums..No wonder I post on Mensa .com.To keep it short sharp and simple.....Let nobody pay and see if they lock us all up.I never answer the door and if that imaginary TV licence van appears I will disappear into the wild blue yonder.

Well, I see Brigadier Boring is on the case and is going to be having "talks" with the BBC in the Autumn....I have just looked into my crystal ball and have seen......

Phone rings on a desk somewhere in BBC TV Centre...

"Hello Martin, there is some chap here who says he is a Minister from the Isle of Wight or something. Here's here to negotiate keeping free TV Licences for the over 75's there. I think he's been drinking."

Martin: "Call security".

 

24 hours later:

 

Media Release from Cabinet Office

Robust talks between Minister Thomas and BBC senior management were held in London yesterday. Minister Thomas spent over an hour at the BBC and said that "I received a warm welcome at the BBC, and I believe it was a positive meeting. We aren't in a position to release any details yet, as it is likely I will be going back to London at sometime in the near future to meet with some more people at a high level."
