Rejected petition Make the television license a voluntary contribution not a legal requirement.

The BBC is publicly funded yet is completely biased in political views. It has admitted to broadcasting programmes that are biased in favour of the Labour Party and has deliberately misled the public in it's reporting of Conservative views and the Brexit rederendum and process.

More details

It promotes sexism by not paying women and men equally for the same positions and has no public input on how funds are spent. An organisation funded by the public should be unbiased in ALL areas.
