Accrington Observer - - YOUR VIEWS -

IS there no end to the BBC’s whinge­ing about li­cences?

Now it wants to with­draw the free TV li­cence for pen­sion­ers over 75.

This from the be­he­moth that pays huge salaries to Gary Lineker and other so-called stars.

What an af­front to peo­ple who strug­gle on the state pen­sion.

Just get­ting rid of Lineker would pay for the el­derly.

Isn’t it about time to scrap the li­cence fee and make the BBC pay its own way - like all other me­dia com­pa­nies?

But, say­ing that, let’s all be fair. How can the bloated BBC af­ford to give Gary Lineker ‘an­other’ pay rise if it doesn’t scrap the free li­cence for the over-75s? Dar­ryl Ash­ton Great Har­wood
