The BBC is to spend Â£25 million of taxpayers' money a year on creating an Arabic television channel to rival al-Jazeera in the Middle East.
I am slowly becoming disenchanted with the Beeb. Why should our licence fee/taxes be used to allow the rest of the world to watch free TV and listen to free radio?
Most programmes are also now available online for anyone in the world to watch and listen to at their leisure
I think the BBC is taking the piss out of us using our money!
