They thought it was worth the licence fee.


Do you?

Quite a while ago that, wasn't it? Some charity thing or other?

Whatever it was, doesn't matter anyway, I actually think very little the BBC does is worth the astronomical fee we HAVE to pay. IMO, they need modernising, and quickly, and should be competing with other broadcasters on their own two feet, not being given a hand out by the vast majority of the country. Sooner they lose the license fee, the better.

BBC = Big Bloody Con.

I prefer Lou Reed's original.

Doctor Who, The Goodies, Red Dwarf, and BlackAdder were worth the licence fee. This? I'm not so sure!

It was a charity thing but I can't remember which one. It was the reference to the unique funding blurb at the end that got me thinking. Personally I like the Beeb but I also know someone who worked there and the stories about the liquid lunches about 3 years ago would have curled your hair.

Well lunches like these would have lead to weight loss eventually ...........................

I have to admit that is one of the few songs featuring "modern" singers which gives me a real lift.


Katzy - 12-12-2007 at 19:26

Kat sends Crikes a copy of the original...


crikey - 12-12-2007 at 19:38

.....and crikes, as ever, acknowledges Kat's unfailing generosity and Christmas spirit. May your baubles never tarnish, mate!
