Gary Lineker says BBC should make licence fee voluntary. Highest-paid BBC presenter would raise cost for those who pay

He may be a plonker but farmers would find him useful.

I've little time for Mr Lineker: I hate the way he comes on screen just before the BBC news and hypes up MOTD (in which, more often than not, nothing interesting happens - but then I'm not much of a fan of the "not-so-beautiful game"). But I wouldn't call him a 'plonker' for this. After all, don't we often enough cough up for the 'premium' version of a website, so as to get more options and remove the ads? I've done so, on several sites.

So what if the Beeb introduces adverts (*groan*!) but doesn't show them to licence-payers? Easy to manage with online content; don't know if such a system could be policed on old-fashioned TV....

I wouldn't rock the boat as far as the tv licence is concerned, at least we have the big stick of paying for one service to beat them with. Take that away or change things and it would be the govs excuse to double the fee.

I know in reality it's a licence fee for being able to receive ( not receiving ) a tv channel but if we complain about paying for the BBC they'll put adverts in and tell us we're not paying for the BBC anymore just paying the new television tax so what would we achieve ? -- paying for ads?

Most back pages are full of football, with a few other ball games.

Professional cycling is completely tied up with commerce too. I suppose all sports are, at the top.

I know people who only read the back pages.
Why don't they sell newspapers for them, and newspapers for the people who don't read the back pages?

Any road up, we don't buy them at all. We get given them by the arms full and they either light the fire or line the parrot cage ........ which eventually go in the fire as well. Hopefully the parrot can read before she poos on it. :lol:

I'm afraid that's one of the old classics that doesn't work when written. :( The other one I know is, "what's brown and smelly and comes out of cow[e]s backwards...?". Are there any others like that?

EDIT: @Pete

err.. are you sure??

I think the "read" version only works orally, but
the "red" version just works!


[Love your brown joke, a true classic!]

Ok, try this:
what's green and red all over?
