BBC Spin Machine Lobbying MPs on Licence Fee

The BBC are using their team of expensive in-house lobbyists to cajole MPs into rejecting plans to decriminalise not paying the TV Licence Fee. In a briefing seen by Guido, smooth talking BBC lobbyist Alice Dickerson told MPs that “the BBC does not want people to go to prison,” before reminding MPs that 51 people were locked up for not paying their TV licence fines in 2012. She goes on to threaten that the move would mean the they would lose £200 million every year which “would lead to substantial cuts in BBC content and services”, and says she wants to delay any debate on the issue until 2016. Guido has a better idea of where the axe could fall: why not scrap Auntie’s army of PR types and lobbyists who use millions of licence fee payers’ money every year to lobby against our interests.
