Tories Mull Over A BBC Sell Off

There was a rumour on Twitter last week that BBC staff have been bricking themselves since the election result.

Viewing figures for the News and Parliament channels have plunged and BBC World remains cut off from the tax payer.

Little wonder that Tory MPs are now openly urging Boris Johnson to do what was once unthinkable and target the bias beeb.

One minister told TBG that “there is a real appetite for change.”

“We are fed up with their bias on every major issue.”

One even called them the “Brussels Broadcasting Corporation.”

Andrew Bridgen told TBG - “The protected status that the BBC has enjoyed is not their saviour or salvation.”

“Decriminalisation of the licencing fee will be a catalyst for change.”

“How the BBC responds will decide its future.”
