BBC spending our money wisely again

Until 2014 the BBC World Service is funded by a "grant-in-aid" from the Foreign Office.

It is that grant which is being cut, but have to ask why these services, which the BBC themselves describe as "marginal" , have crawled along for so long.

Cannot see there being many sleepless nights over the loss of the Albanian service because we say such nasty things about their Eurovision entries.

WTF is "English for the Caribbean"? Please tell me it's not some dreadlocked Rastaman from Hackney talking bolleaux in a funny accent.

I don't know what you ungrateful peasants are complaining about! As soon as the recession hit, BBC top management completely re-equipped ALL of their newsrooms (including the regional ones) because they 'liked the design of the furniture' and BBC South hired more presenters. You certainly can't claim that the Beeb doesn't know how to tighten their belts in a recession.

Oh, and the BBC staff striking because they want much more of the licence fee to be paid into their pension fund so that they can retire into the style to which they have been accustomed.
