  • its about time political leaders boycotted the bbc because of their bias towards the racis.t labour party . The bbc is full of ex guardian employees who only represent one political point of view . How can anybody take the bbc seriously after the savile scandal and huge payouts to redundant staff funded by the hard up taxpayer . The time has come to get rid of the licence fee which is funding this left wing news organisation
