And so the Beeb won’t get it’s weather forecasts from the Met Office anymore. This is because it now has to offer it’s contracts to tender to ‘secure the best value for licence payers’ which of course is great but sometimes I don’t want the best value I just want the best. Which the Met Office is.
Dutch and New Zealand companies are interested, I bet they are! Offer a cut price service that millions will watch because it’s on the BBC.
This is how the BBC will be dismantled, cut costs to the bone so the service suffers and when the quality and range of services have gone people will ask why do we need a public service broadcaster? And then it’s gone.
And the Tory MP quoted in the article can eff right off.
