...as we know it? I think so. The **** is really starting to hit the fan over the pensioners TV licence, particularly after the revelations about their salaries. Of course, their defenders are blaming the government, but the fact is the BBC accepted responsibility for those pensioners licence fees as part of the deal a few years ago that provided increases to the licence fee. The BBC's Lord Hall accepted it at the time as part of what he called was a good deal for the BBC. It is clearly the BBC's responsibility, despite any of their wriggling, and they have made the decision on their own. They can easily make cuts, elsewhere. High executive salaries, pensioners, political bias, changing viewing habits? Turbulent times, I believe.
