Petition Action

Abolish the BBC licence fee and make this is a subscription-only channel.

Additional Information

In a world of free market economics, why are the British people still obliged to pay for the services of the BBC. The licence fee is only matched by income tax and national insurance in its ubiquity and this position is redundant. We - the listeners - are now consumers of the BBC and as it has seen fit to abandon its position of political neutrality, we as those who disagree, should be allowed to opt out.
