It regularly has online polls on various subjects, previous examples have been
How many overseas holidays will you take this year?
Would you ‘pay in cash’ to help people avoid tax?
All interesting stuff no doubt. This week's question is this
Do you believe in the BBC Licence fee
And the response is, No not really,
Do you believe in the licence fee?
A. Yes. I think it's an important public service
24% (4320 votes)
B. Yes, but it's far too high. It needs to be cut and scaled back
27% (4722 votes)
C. No. I'd happily see ads fund it
49% (8773 votes)
All seems pretty conclusive to me.
The comments section is worth a read,
It is an archaic system and an unfair tax. Of course, the BBC is well aware that in the free ad driven market, they would not be able to compete as people simply would not pay the license fee and quite happily do without BBC, repeats and all. Surely, the BBC funding system is on borrowed time!
