I think the phrase is actualy "cheese eating surrender monkey"
gotta love Blackadder (Quality programming from the BBC)
And I agree entirely with you. I would bet my license fee that the majority on here claiming not to watch actualy do.
I pay my license fee, and will continue to do so for as long as the BBC continue to make commercial free TV. To all of our brethren from accross the
pond, that means you sit down to watch a program at say....7 oclock, and it finishes at 8 oclock, with no interuptions...imagine that, a whole program
without somebody trying to sell you something. And it gets better, cos when that program finishes...it goes straight into another program, still
without anybody attepmting to sell you stuff.
I also wonder how many people arguing the cost of the fee, still subscribe to SKY or Virgin.
Skys top package at the moment cost about £60 a month......i'll say it louder A MONTH! and thats gives you what, about 20 exclusive channels over
and above what you can get on freesat or freeveiw for the cost of the license fee.
I hope the beeb do go down the path of scrambled services on digital purely because I dont think anyone should be forced to pay for a non-esential
service if they dont want it. (for the record, I would continue to pay to receive the BBC channels, and you would probably still need a license for
the radio anyway)
