    The removal of anyone who criticises Johnson / Cummings and their destruction of everything that made Britain 'great' continues

    https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/...and-moore-tipped-for-top-jobs-in-tv-lzn0lvxbs

    Boris Johnson is ushering in a revolution at the top of British broadcasting by offering two of the top jobs in television to outspoken critics of the BBC.

    Paul Dacre, the former editor of the Daily Mail, is the prime minister’s choice to become chairman of Ofcom, the broadcasting regulator, replacing Lord Burns, who is due to leave before the end of the year.

    Lord Moore, the former editor of the Daily Telegraph and biographer of Margaret Thatcher, who has condemned the criminalisation of those who refuse to pay the licence fee, has been asked by the prime minister to take up the post of BBC chairman.

    You describe the BBC as the opposition to the government. Do you think it is?

    Two people might get jobs.

    Right... hopefully they push the BBC into a subscription model. Long overdue.

    "You describe the BBC as the opposition to the government. Do you think it is?"

    There is absolutely no doubt that the BBC is a not very subtle extension of the Labour Party.

    For all its official bluster about being without fear nor favour, it spends 90% of its entire existence publishing report after report undermining everything the Government does. It's constantly publicising minority views that disagree with the Government with banner headlines, and if it gives the counter views at all, they are buried in the small print at the bottom. The views of 'experts' you've rarely heard of are used to chip away and sow seeds of doubt on the Government position without the same kind of exposure in support of the Government. The so-called political commentators, over paid in the extreme, constantly manufacture stories by casting doubt on everything. The BBC far from holding the Government to account spend their entire lives undermining everything and anything the Government does. You only have to look at the fear the BBC whipped up over such examples as 'not enough ventilators' back in April and the anti-Brexit fear mongering it constantly spreads to see that.

    The BBC has lost all the values we used to cherish. This Labour Party Extension should be broken up. The pigs-in-troughs have had their bacon.

    Dacre is infamous for referring to all and sundry in the offices he has been based in as ‘c***s‘.

    I wonder how many posters on here who are teachers would enjoy working for someone like that.

    Since when did pigs eat bacon? There is real quality thinking behind this barmy remark. Tells us all we need to know......
