    Yeah, you go on believing that if you want.

    The truth is the BBC is a Statutory Corporation that operates under the Royal Charter and a licensing agreement with the Home Secretary. They are just as much part of the government as British cities, which FYI also operate under the Royal Charter.

    145 multiplied by how many people in the UK own a TV = billions of pounds.
    There are other avnues but the majority is funded by the licence fees.

    You keep believing that the British government has full control over the BBC if you want.

    So?

    Who do they pay the license fee too? Do you write a cheque to the BBC? Or do you pay the government? Who sets the fee, the BBC or your government?

    True or False.... Your license fee is officially classed as a tax by your government.


    You keep believing that the British government has full control over the BBC if you want.
    You keep thinking their independent if you want. Doesn't change the fact that they only broadcast what the government allows them to, and often twist truths and broadcast falsehoods for the sole purpose of supporting the government on issues such as immigration and climate change.
